We want to do better than last time ... Kalisto Pasuwa

THE Warriors are scheduled to play an international friendly match against neighbours Mozambique in preparation for their 2016 African Nations Championships (Chan) tournament.

ZIFA president Philip Chiyangwa addressed players at their training session at Gateway High School on Monday said they had secured an international friendly against Mozambique but said the date and venue for the match have not been confirmed.

“The players are happy; the coach is happy as well. We have also organised a friendly match for the team against Mozambique.

“We are, however, still to agree on the date and venue of the match," said Chiyangwa.

Warriors coach Kalisto Pasuwa also said morale was high in camp.

“If you see the president coming to the ground, everything is okay. It lifts the morale and it's now up to us to go and try to do well and give back.

“The team that played at the last tournament reached the semi-finals and we want to do better than that,” said Pasuwa.

The Warriors gaffer added that they were still waiting to hear from medical team over the availability of captain Danny Phiri who is struggling with an ankle injury.

Team doctor Soman Mudariki said Phiri sustained a knock during their Easy Call Cup tie against Highlanders and would need to reassess him.

“He is doing well and are monitoring him. We will have to reassess him tomorrow (Tuesday) and then come up with a position,” said Mudariki.

The Chan tournament, designed exclusively for home-based players, is expected to kick off in Rwanda from January 16 to February 7.

The Warriors, who are in Group D together with perennial rivals Zambia, West Africans Mali and East African football kings Uganda, will be based in the border town of Gisenyi.

Zimbabwe has appeared at every edition of the tournament since its inauguration and finished at the semi-final stage in the previous tournament held in South Africa.
