Warriors coach Sunday Chidzambwa will today announce his preliminary squad for the Afcon and Cosafa tournaments.

The squad announcement will be made at the Holiday Inn in Harare from 12 pm.

The national team will feature at Cosafa tournament in South Africa from June 1 before travelling to Egypt for the Afcon which starts on June 21.

They will start their title defence at the regional competition in the quarterfinals on the 1st of June against winners of Group B. At Afcon, the Chidzambwa coached side will begin the campaign on the first day versus the hosts, Egypt.

Zimbabwe is also scheduled to play a couple of friendly games before the trip to North Africa, with the match against Nigeria on the 8th of June already confirmed.

The date of the fixture, however, clashes with that of the Cosafa final.

But Chidzambwa revealed to the media a few weeks ago that if his charges manage to reach the Cup final he will split his squad so that they can also fulfil the practice match against the West Africans.
