Zimbabwe has failed to make it into the final shortlist for the CAF Men’s National Team of the Year award.

The Warriors were among the six nominees initially announced last month. Mauritania, Uganda and Madagascar who qualified to the 2019 Afcon finals for the first time in their history are the final contenders for the award.

Zimbabwe had hoped to finish among the final nominees after they successfully defended the COSAFA Cup in June.

The awards ceremony will be held on January 8, 2019, in Senegal.
