The local group of the Warriors team is now in Adis Ababa, Ethiopia where it is waiting to proceed to Djibouti today for the 2022 World Cup qualifier against Somalia.

Six players — goalkeeper Talbert Shumba, Peter Muduhwa, Maclive Phiri, Sipho Ndlovu, Tichaona Chipunza and Phineas Bamusi, together with nine officials arrived in the West African country around mid-night and will link up with the foreign-based stars there.

The national side’s preparations have not been smooth and at one point, it looked like the squad might fail to travel after Zifa had their accounts frozen.

The team didn’t train as a whole unit, and it will only have one day to do so when they arrive at their destination.

The game is on Thursday and kick-off is at 5 pm Zimbabwean time.
