Zimbabwe coach Sunday Chidzambwa is set to meet with ZIFA this week to find ways of getting the senior national team into regular action.
The Warriors will resume their AFCON Qualifiers in September playing away against Congo in Brazzaville, but the veteran coach is not amused by that long wait and knows the implications of long spells of inactivity.
In an interview with The Herald, Chidzambwa said they will use the friendly matches to assess some of the foreign-based players who are yet to play for the national team.
“I am meeting with ZIFA this week to arrange for the friendly matches that we would be playing. Obviously, during these matches we would want to see some of the players we have never seen in action,” said Chidzambwa.
“Some of the players playing outside came last year, but there are many of them who are yet to be tested, so we will hear from ZIFA what their plan is with the team regarding our opponents and our players.”
The next FIFA international break will start on 19 March until 27 March.
