Warriors coach Sunday Chidzambwa says the team wants to win against DRC tonight but will try to avoid the pressure that comes with such desire.
Zimbabwe need to beat their Group A opponents to stand a chance to qualify to the knockout stages of the Afcon tournament for the first time in their history.
Speaking ahead of the match, Chidzambwa said: “In every match, there is some sort of pressure due to the desire to win.
“But our main aim is to prevent pressure and play to win, and that is what we will do in front of (DR) Congo to qualify.”
The match kicks off at 9 pm Zimbabwean time.
