Warriors head coach Callisto Pasuwa made a U-turn on an earlier decision to rest Khama Billiat for the upcoming international friendly against Tanzania by including the winger in his 23 man squad.

Pasuwa had expressed concern at the amount of games Billiat had been playing and was keen to rest him again after he missed out the final AFCON qualifier against Guinea.

However with the tournament now only a couple of months the Warriors technical team feels they needs to make the most of the few friendlies that may take place between now and the AFCON start.

“There may not be other opportunities to assess the whole group together” stated ZIFA in a tweet after being questioned on why Billiat had now included.

The decision is likely to be welcomed by a number of Warriors fans who had questioned the plans not to include Billiat in the friendly.
