Zimbabwe has already been eliminated after two successive defeats.

“The heart should be with the nation and that is why we put our hands on the Zimbabwean bird each time the national anthem is being played,” Zvirekwi told the Association’s official website www.zifa.org.zw.

“Now we have our pride to play for and we have to tenaciously work for that pride and end the CHAN tournament with dignity,” said the 28 year old Captain.

Uganda still have a chance to qualify with a win. Ugandan coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has given praise to Warriors head coach Callisto Pasuwa and says Zimbabwe are better than what was seen at CHAN 2016.
