The national team will put on black armbands and observe a moment of silence in today’s match in honour of the victims of the deadly Cyclone Idai.

Zifa announced the development last night which coincides with two-day national mourning of hundreds of lives lost in the natural disaster which hit the eastern part of the country last week.

The encounter will be played at National Sports Stadium in Harare. Zimbabwe need at least a draw to book their place at Afcon finals set for Egypt in June.

Congo, on the other hand, want nothing short of a victory to qualify.
