Sibanda names experienced squad for Olympics qualifier

Mighty Warriors coach Sithethelelwe Sibanda has named the provisional squad for back to back Olympics qualifiers against Zambia.

 

The bulk of the 23-member team participated at the COSAFA Women’s Championship (CWC) earlier in August while some were part of the provisional squad for CWC 2019.

 

Black Rhinos midfielder Daisy Kaitano and Weerams goalkeeper Onai Chingawo are the only players who were part of the bronze winning CWC team who are not in the squad.

 

In the absence of Chingawo, Harare City Queens’ teen goalkeeper Cynthia Shonga – who was part of the COSAFA Under-20 team – has earned her first senior team call-up.

 

Preparations begin on 24 August and we play the first leg in Lusaka on the 28th.  The reverse will be played at the National Sports Stadium on 1 September.

 

Gate charges for the match are as follows:

ROG:           $2

Bay 15-18:    $5

VIP:              $20
