Ranga Chivaviro has opened about playing for the Zimbabwean national team.
The striker, who was with Marumo Gallants last season, was born in Limpopo, South Africa to a Zimbabwean father and a South African mother and grew up in Mpumalanga.
The 30-year-old hasn’t played for his country of birth and in interview on South African radio station Metro FM, he revealed there was a talk about him playing for the Warriors in 2018.
Chivaviro said: “It has come to me before in 2018, but I’m not sure if you’re able to represent the country when you don’t have identification documents.
“But the talk was (there) when I was still playing for Baroka, apparently it’s possible especially when one of your parents is from that country, I think you’re seeing it with European countries.”
The Limpopo-born striker
added that he would still consider the call-up if Zimbabwe in approach him again.
He said: “Honestly it would definitely be food for thought. I wouldn’t blatantly say ‘no’. I would obviously think about it and I think in the end consider it.
“I’ve always said this, it’s a good honour to represent your own country or a certain country. As a footballer, one day when you retire and you’re sitting at home, it’s nice to look back and say I’ve donned a certain national jersey you know.”
