In-form FC Platinum forward Rodwell Chinyengetere has been drafted into the Warriors squad to face DRC on Tuesday as a replacement for suspended captain Knowledge Musona.
Musona was red carded in Kinshasa on Saturday moments after scoring Zimbabwe’s second goal which proved to be the winner.
Warriors manager Wellington Mupandare confirmed the new inclusion and also said that Richard Hachiro of Herentals and Yadah winger Leroy Mavunga have been put on standby.
“Yes, Chinyengetere has been called to the team. The coaches looked at his form, and we have also put Richard Hachiro and Leroy Mavunga on standby, ” said Mupandare.
This is a remarkable comeback into the Warriors squad for Chinyengetere who last played for the national team during his time at Hwange when he got the horrific injury that kept him out of the game for some time.
The Warriors lead group G with 7 points, three ahead of Congo Brazzaville and DRC.
