The Warriors coach said they are targeting big and competitive teams to play with in March.
“We want to play strong teams, and we have requested to ZIFA to get us those opponents. ,” said Chidzambwa.
“We don’t know which team will agree to our request, but we feel any one of these teams will present us with good competition.”
The newspaper added that Chidzambwa has also placed neighbours South Africa and Kenya on his radar.
