Ndiraya's Young Warriors To Play Mozambique In The Africa Under-23 Cup of Nations
Zimbabwe Young Warriors (Under 23) coach, Tonderrai Ndiraya will be taking his side to Mozambique for the second round of the 2019 Africa Under-23 Cup of Nations.
The Young Warriors will play the Mambas of Mozambique on March 22 in Maputo and the reverse fixture is four days later in Harare.
Ndiraya does not have enough time to prepare for the match as he was confirmed by the ZIFA board at the weekend.
Team manager Charles Mukaronda, who is returning to the team after serving under Callisto Pasuwa four years ago had this to say:
The good thing is that our coach Tonderai Ndiraya was already on the ground working on the team.
Now we are in the process of putting things together and what we probably need to do now is to try and make sure that all the players that we want are released on time by their clubs.
If Zimbabwe beat Mozambique‚ they will meet either South Africa or Angola in the decisive round of the qualifiers for a place at the eight-team Under-23 AFCON scheduled for Egypt in November.
