Warriors team manager Wellington Mupandare has revealed that they are targeting Germany based player Kelvin Lunga to play for the national team.

Lunga who is the son of former Dynamos forward Max Makanza plays for SV Rödinghausen in the fourth tier of the German football league system.

According to The Standard, the 23-year-old could be included in the squad for the upcoming Cosafa Cup once the process of regularising his paperwork is done on time.

He holds a Germany passport.

“He (Kelvin) is in our future plans, and if we manage to get his travel documents in time he could be available for selection for the Cosafa Cup title defence,” Mupandare told the newspaper.

“We have been following his progress in Germany for some time now, and he’s an exciting midfielder with a lot of pace and skill as well as an eye for goal. ”

The imminent call-up of Lunga to the Warriors squad represents another shift by the Warriors technical department in its efforts to integrate emerging talent from the swelling diaspora community.

Reading FC midfielder Andy Rinomhota and Ipswich Town rising star Tristan Nydam are also on the radar of Warriors coach Sunday Chidzambwa.
