Warriors coach Sunday Chidzambwa has left fifteen players in South Africa that will play in the Cosafa 3rd and forth playoff game against Lesotho.
The coach had a 34-member provisional squad and took 19 players to Nigeria where he is set to play a friendly match on Saturday. The travelling team is part the of the final Afcon selection.
Four players will be selected from the group that remained in South Africa and join those that have gone to West Africa to form a 23-member squad for Afcon.
The short-listed players that will make the quartet include goalkeeper Elvis Chipezeze, Ronald Pfumbidzai, Thabani Kamusoko, Tafadzwa Kutinyu and Admiral Muskwe.
