The local contingent of the Warriors squad is set to depart for Monrovia, Liberia via Johannesburg this evening.

The national team will play the West African country on Sunday in the 2019 Afcon Qualifiers, Group G encounter.

The technical team led by coach Sunday Chidzambwa and three players are still in Harare while the advance party left on Tuesday evening. All foreign-based players will fly direct from their bases in Europe and South Africa.

“Eight members of the technical team and FC Platinum duo of Kelvin Moyo and Rodwell Chinyengetere, as well as France-based Tino Kadewere who asked to come home with his family, will leave this evening,” Warriors’ team manager Wellington Mpandare confirmed to ZBC News.

“Travelling to West Africa is not easy as very few airlines fly to Liberia…all foreign-based players are flying from their bases in Belgium, England and SA. We expect everyone to be in Monrovia by Thursday evening.”

Zimbabwe currently lead the group and need at least a draw to book their place at the finals to be held in Cameroon.
