Warriors caretaker coach has named an 18-member squad for the World Cup qualifier against Somalia next month.

The selection includes a number of new faces in the likes of Macclive Phiri, Tichaona Chipunza, Phenias Bamusi and Clive Augusto.

Knowledge Musona, George Chigova, Ovidy Karuru and Marvelous Nakamba are some of the notable names omitted.

The encounter is a preliminary round fixture and the first leg will be played on a neutral venue in Djibouti on 5 September. This is due to security concerns in Somalia.

The return leg will be played at Barbourfields Stadium, three days later.
