Kadewere, Munetsi Now Available For Warriors AFCON Qualifiers
The French Football Federation has agreed with the French government to allow foreign players to join their national teams for international matches this month.
This means that the France-based Warriors duo, Tinotenda Kadewere and Marshall Munetsi will be exempted from quarantine when they return to their clubs.
The Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) said it is engaging with its partners to organise a private plane for them so that they are available for the important matches.
Meanwhile, the Warriors players based in Zambia are already in camp, so is the SuperSport duo of Evans Rusike and Kuda Mahachi.
More players are expected to arrive today and tomorrow.
