Warriors squad revised

By Lawrence Trusida

WARRIORS midfielder Ovidy Karuru and defender Jimmy Dzingai have been left out of the revised squad ahead of back to back World Cup Qualifiers set for the 3rd and 7th of next month.

Warriors’ vice-captain Ovidy Karuru who is club hunting has been given time off ahead of the World cup qualifiers against South Africa and Ethiopia.

Karuru was part of the initial squad announced last week but Coach Zdravko Logarusic has decided to give him more time to secure his future.

Defender Jimmy Dzingai who was released by Zambian club Nkana last season has also been dropped from the revised squad.

It has also been a tough time for the Warriors technical department after it was confirmed that the British brigade and United States-based Teenage Hadebe will not be available due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Defenders Godknows Murwira of Dynamos, FC Platinum’s William Stima and Kelvin Moyo who is unattached at the moment have been drafted into the squad.

In midfield, the coaches have called up the South African-based duo of Farai Madhanhanga and Ishmael Wadi alongside talented winger Silas Songani from defending Premier league champions, FC Platinum.

South African based striker Knox Mutizwa has been drafted into the team’s attack which has Captain Knowledge Musona, France-based Tino Kadewere, Knox Mutizwa and Terrence Dzukamanja.

The team is expected to go into camp this Sunday with training sessions getting underway on Monday ahead of the match against South Africa on Friday.
