National Teams General Manager Wellington Mpandare expressed his excitement over Maswanhise’s desire to play for Zimbabwe. He said:
It’s exciting news for Zimbabweans because he (Maswanhise) is a player that we have always wanted to represent Zimbabwe.
We need a large pool of Zimbabwean players dotted around the world to come and play for their nation, it will be up to the coach to then select the best that will represent the nation.
Maswanhise is a player we have always wanted to represent Zimbabwe and now that he has admitted that he wants to, it’s good and exciting and we hope that this time, he will be able to come.
Maswanhise was born in Zimbabwe and moved to the United Kingdom at the age of two.
He has previously been targeted by Warriors coaches, including Norman Mapeza before the 2021 AFCON finals in Cameroon.
