Mighty Warriors coach Sithethelelwe Sibanda has named a 30-member provisional squad to prepare for our Africa Women Cup of Nations (AWCON) qualifier against Botswana. Pindula News presents a ZIFA statement on the development:
26 locally-based players will begin training on 2 February in Harare while four foreign-based players will join on Valentine’s Day when the international break begins.
The first leg will be played at the National Sports Stadium on 18 February and the return at Obedi Itani Chilume in Francistown on 23 February.
A win against Botswana will earn the Mighty Warriors a place among 12 teams to play at the AWCON2022 finals in Morocco in July. Top four teams at the continental finals will automatically qualify for the 2023 FIFA Women World Cup finals.
