The Warriors will be in action tomorrow in what is the biggest football game in the country for some decades now.
The national team face Congo Brazzaville at National Sports Stadium in a crucial Afcon qualifier. The game is so big, and the boys could seal their qualification to the finals on the last day, something they failed to do against the same opponents twenty-seven years ago.
As a way of motivating them ahead of the third decisive tie, the Warriors were supposed to meet President Emmerson Mnangagwa yesterday, but the scheduled dinner was called off due to national mourning of the victims of Cyclone Idai.
But they still got a message of motivation from Nelson Chamisa, the leader of the biggest opposition political party in the country.
National teams remind us that we one as a people.The warriors remind us we are fighters,that the battle is one and must be won.The outcome is one,our victory.We’re one with our men,for our nation. Proudly Zimbabwean, my duty is to support our best, the national team!#GoWarriorsGo

Other public figures rallying behind the Warriors include Minister of Sport Kirsty Coventry and former and current players.
It is not an easy walk in the park like some fans believe.We are playing a Congo that is capable of beating us.But I believe we will bring our A game on the day and qualify…Only if we bring our A game
Go Warriors Go!!#BhoraLethu
