Warriors begin preparations for CHAN finals in Rwanda

THE Warriors are set to troop into camp on Sunday to start preparing for next month’s Chan tournament to be hosted by Rwanda.
Coach Callisto Pasuwa last week named a 32-member provisional squad of locally-based players that would be trimmed to 18 men just before departure for Kigali.
The Chan tournament runs from 16 January to 7 February.
Zifa spokesperson Xolisani Gwesela announced the start of camp on Sunday.
“Warriors representing our beautiful country in the Chan finals are expected to troop into on Sunday, 13 December. Normal training sessions are expected to commence on Monday, 14 December,” Gwesela said.
“Letters have already been sent to their respective clubs. We are very confident that Pasuwa and his indefatigable troops will grind a positive result.”
Zimbabwe would be making a fourth straight appearance at Chan.
Their best performance was at last year’s edition where they finished the fourth best team.
