Warriors coach Sunday ‘Mhofu’ Chidzambwa is not worried about the prospects of facing hosts Egypt in the opening encounter of AFCON 2019 tonight.


The veteran coach, who is taking charge of his second AFCON finals after guiding the Warriors to their maiden appearance in 2004, insists he has players who can manage the situation well.


“We have veteran players who can deal with this atmosphere (that of facing the host team in front of their fans),” said Chidzambwa.


“We are in a difficult group in the finals and also that was the same in the qualifiers, but we managed to qualify. As we qualified, so why don’t we make a new surprise,” he added.


The Warriors are without suspended goalkeeper George Chigova and Chidzambwa says he is not worried about that.


“I have three goalkeepers at the same level. The absence of any of them doesn’t worry me at all,” he said when asked how a big a blow the unavailability of the Polokwane City goalkeeper is.
