The Warriors camp have been boosted by the availability of Midfielder Marvellous Nakamba who returns after missing the opening Group B encounter against Algeria.
The midfielder was suspended for accumulating 3 yellow cards during the qualifiers. He will be a valuable addition in the side which is already missing top striker Knowledge Musona due to injury.
The 22-year-old is predominantly a holding midfielder although he can also play further forward if required.
The midfielder has played 59 games for Vitesse in the Netherlands to date, scoring two goals and providing four assists in the process. Before departing Netherlands for the Gabon AFCON 2017, he had featured 18 times this season, playing every minute of all but one league match – when he was suspended after collecting four yellow cards.
In Netherlands he has the record of most successful tackles.
Incidentaly, the Senegalese match tomorrow will mark the player’s 23rd Birthday. We wish him the best on the day!
