Zimbabwe men’s senior national team the Warriors safely arived in Ghana Tuesday afternoon ahead of the first leg of the back-to-back World Cup qualifier encounter with Ghana in Cape Coast.
The country’s football mother body Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) confirmed the squad’s arrival on twitter.
“Warriors have arrived safely in Ghana ahead of Black Stars World cup qualifier clash,” ZIFA posted on twitter.
Zimbabwe will play Ghana on Saturday and will then host the same team in the return leg set to be played at National Sports Stadium on Tuesday next week.
The Warriors are winless in these World Cup qualifiers after losing one nil to the Ethiopians and playing to a goaless draw at home with South Africa.
The team experienced a poor streak of results with former headcoach Zdravko Logarusic who was fired few weeks ago winning one out of 14 games.
The match versus Ghana will be Interim coach Norman Mapeza’s first match after his re-appointment as the Warriors coach.
