Warriors Could Host Both AFCON Qualifiers Against Algeria

The Warriors of Zimbabwe’s away tie in next month’s back-to-back Afcon Qualifiers against the Desert Foxes of Algeria could be played on a neutral venue or in Harare.

This follows revelations that the borders of the North African country are still closed in a bid to curb the spread of SARS-CoV-2, the new coronavirus which causes COVID-19.

Algeria hosts Zimbabwe on matchday three of the Afcon Qualifiers on 12 November. The encounter is scheduled to be played at 5 July 1962 Stadium in Algiers, the country’s capital.

The Algerian government has restricted entry into the country to locals returning on repatriation flights from abroad, foreign nationals with diplomatic visas, employees of foreign companies operating in the country.

If the current situation persists to next month, there might be changes to the venue for Algeria versus Zimbabwe match.

As a way to counter such restrictions, CAF recently made proposals to the National Associations in order to keep the matchdays three and four running between November 9 and 17.

The first proposal is to play the home match of the affected team in a neutral country where there no travelling restrictions.

The other one is to play the back-to-back games in one of the two countries.
