Khama Billiat says the Afcon Group A match against DRC on Sunday is the team’s only chance to make history in Zimbabwean football.

The Warriors want a win in the tie to stand a wide chance of progressing to the knockout stages of the tournament for the first time in their history.

Zimbabwe are currently in the third position of the group with a point, and a victory on Sunday could see them going beyond the round as either the pool’s runner-up or among the best third-placed teams.

“We never play football without pressure,” Billiat told Next Level Sports. “We are professionals, every game is important to both the fans and players.

“We always want to be on top of our game and the Sunday’s match, with all the pressure it will motivate us.

“I believe in the guys, we will go out there, and with the pride of being Zimbabweans, this is our only chance to make history in local football by reaching the knockout stages of this tournament.”

The match will kick off at 9 pm Zimbabwean time.
