Former national team coach Charles Mhlauri believes the Warriors have a good chance to beat Congo next Sunday and qualify to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
Zimbabwe needs at least a draw in the encounter that will be played at National Sports Stadium in Harare.
In an interview with Sunday News, the US-based gaffer said that the selected players for the match are capable of delivering a positive result.
“I have worked with Sunday Chidzambwa, Rahman Gumbo and Brenna Msika before and I’m confident that their boys are going to do it,” said Mhlauri who is currently in the country.
“It’s unfortunate I can’t give advice to Chidzambwa through the media. I have his numbers and probably I will call him with regards to the match. He is the best man and his players should be able to deliver. They have a good chance to qualify”
Chidzambwa was the first coach to take the Warriors to their first Africa Cup of Nations competition in 2004 before Mhlauri achieved the same fate two years later.
