Zimbabwe national team head coach Norman Mapeza has named Knowledge as the new captain for the National Team.

The KV Oostende winger takes over from Willard Katsande, who has retired from international football.

Coach Norman Mapeza announced the widely expected appointment of Musona as the national team’s new captain to reporters during the training session.

He succeeds Katsande, who played his last game for the national team, a 4-2 defeat in an AFCON 2017 final group match against Tunisia.

Musona will be deputised by Ngezi Platinum captain Patson Jaure.

Musona has made 41 appearances scoring 18 goals for Zimbabwe since making his debut against the South Africa in a friendly in 2010. He scored a blinder of a goal vs Tunisia at AFCON 2017 beating two defenders and smashing the ball beyond the goalkeeper. His goals have also helped Belgian League outfit KV Oostende.

He was part of the Zimbabwe team that qualified for the 2017 AFCON in Gabon where he scored a belter in Zimbabwe’s last group match.

The Belgian based forward is to see his first action since being named captain on Sunday, when Zimbabwe face Liberia at home in their first match of qualifying for the 2019 AFCON in Cameroon.
