Young Warriors coach Tonderai Ndiraya is likely to use the squad which made the trip to Mozambique last week in tomorrow’s second leg of the second round qualifier of the U23 Afcon 2019.
Ndiraya named a few foreign based players in the squad including goalkeeper Martin Mapisa of Velez CF in Spain, Reward Mwakona (Ards, N. Ireland), Seth Patrick (VFB Luebeck, Germany) and Matifadzi Zata (Dundee United, Scotland).
The winner in tomorrow’s encounter will face either South Africa or Angola in the final round of qualification. Zimbabwe received a bye in the first round and Friday’s stalemate kept their hopes alive of proceeding to the next round.
The game is set for National Sports Stadium in Harare.

Goalkeepers: Martin Mapisa (Velez CF, Spain),Nelson Chadya (Ngez Platinum).
