THE Warriors will have to navigate past Namibia, Seychelles and Mauritius to reach the quarterfinals of the Cosafa Cup 2015 following the draw conducted in Johannesburg, South Africa on Thursday.
Zimbabwe, because of their low ranking, will start at the group stage. Group B has Lesotho, Tanzania, Madagascar and Swaziland.
Should the Warriors progress from this group, they will face Zambia in the last eight-the same team that beat them 2-0 in the 2013 final.
Coach Kalisto Pasuwa, who will be fielding basically an Under 23 side, side he was looking forward to the games.
“It’s another opportunity for us to get to play together again and I hope we will have a strong squad by then. But I am also aware that the local league will be on so I might not get some of the players that I need for the games.
“On the draw itself, it’s a fair one, there are no small teams in football and anything can happen. We need to be prepared and get some games to play before we go there,” he said on Friday.
