Sunday Chidzambga has named a provisional squad in preparation for the Christmas Challenge Cup tie against Zambia, set for the 23rd of this month.

The 24-member team is made up of players playing their club football in Zimbabwe only.

Reigning soccer star of the year, Rodwell Chinyengetere is among the players in contention for a place in the match day squad, so is golden boot winner, Dominic Chungwa.

The team has both experience and the energy of the youth, vintage Matawu has another run, and there is also a place for the local premiership’s rookie of the year, Leeroy Mavunga.

Camp begins on Wednesday 20 December.
