Zimbabwe Warriors will be back in action tomorrow with new coach Wilson Mutekede demanding his side to be at their clinical best against Lesotho in an international friendly.
Mutekede’s first match as head coach is this Wednesday with Zimbabwe seeking to try out different combinations seeking to qualify for the 2019 AFCON Finals set for Cameroon.
It will be the 20th time the two teams are meeting with Zimbabwe having won 14 matches while 4 ended as draws. Zimbabwe has lost only once against Lesotho in an AFCON qualifier back in 2001.
The last time the two teams met was in the COSAFA Cup with Zimbabwe emerging 4-3 winners in a seven goal thriller.
