Zdravko Logarusic has announced his squad for the next World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and Ethiopia.
The Warriors will face Bafana Bafana on September 3 at the National Sports Stadium in Harare before travelling to East Africa for the second Group G match on the 7th of the month.
The campaign will mark the national team’s return to the competition after a FIFA ban saw them miss the 2018 edition.
The squad includes several England-based stars including Aston Villa midfielder Marvelous Nakamba, Luton Town forward Admiral Muskwe, Ipswich Town striker Macauley Bonne, Bournemouth defender Jordan Zemura and Wigan Athletic captain Tendayi Darikwa.
Plymouth Argyle fullback Brendan Galloway has been included in the squad and is replacing Adam Chicksen who failed to make it into the selection.
However, the availability of these England-based stars is still uncertain after English clubs are contemplating on not to release the players in the September window due to the coronavirus travel restrictions.
Zimbabwe is listed as among the riskiest countries and any traveling from there will be required to stay in quarantine for ten days and this will force the players to miss a couple of games.
Tinotenda Kadewere and Marshall Munetsi who play in the French Ligue 1 are also in the team. They are joined by Germany-based Jonah Fabisch.
Here is the squad:
