Zifa President Felton Kamambo has revealed that the Warriors have set up a friendly match and a joint farewell ceremony with South Africa.

The teams are among the five Cosafa nations that will be featuring at the 2019 Afcon tournament set for Egypt from 21 June to 19 July.

According to The Herald, Kamambo has said that the send-off ceremony will be held the night before the friendly game in Harare.

“In terms of serious friendly matches, we actually have one against South Africa that we hope will come to fruition because plans are at an advanced stage,” he said.

“This is part of a joint send-off ceremony that we hope to have together with the South Africa national team that is also going to AFCON finals.

“A friendly match between the two teams will be played on the 26th of May the next day after the send-off ceremony slated for the 25th.”

Should everything go according to plan, the match will be played a day after the Cosafa Cup tournament kicks-off. But the teams will likely receive byes in the group stage and start their campaign later.
