Three friendlies for warriors

The Klaus Dieter Pagels coached side will continue their rebuilding process with a match against Zambia after receiving an invitation to play the former African champions in a match to commemorate the air disaster that claimed their entire national team in 1993.

Zifa has confirmed that the team will also travel to Malawi to play the Flames on Africa Day after being invited by the hosts.

They will then round off with a home friendly match against another southern African team, Lesotho in Harare in June.

Foreign based players are expected to get involved in the Malawi match with some expected to have completed club business by May 18.

A full contingent is expected for the Lesotho match as preparations for the two matches against Egypt and Guinea gather momentum.

Zimbabwe is now out of contention for the 2014 global showcase but are preparing a team that has the task of qualifying for Afcon 2015.

The Warriors have lost two of their first three matches against Guinea and Egypt and have only managed a share of spoils with Mozambique.
