Warriors line up Malawi friendly



With the 2014 World Cup qualifiers on the horizon, the Zimbabwe national team want to play as many friendly games as they can following a lengthy spell of inactivity.

The Warriors were all but disbanded after losing 2-0 to Angola, which cost them a place at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, taking place in neighbouring South Africa from January 19 to February 10.

Bennedict Moyo, a development officer for the Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa), told supersport.com that they are looking at organising some games against countries that will not be competing at the continental showpiece.

He said that Zifa are considering lining up a warm-up tie against Malawi on February 6, as it is a FIFA-endorsed date for international fixtures.

“Yes we are thinking of Malawi to have an international friendly for the coach to look at the players before we play in the World Cup qualifiers against Egypt on March 22. We have to be ready if we are going to play in the qualifiers. These friendly games will help us as we don’t have the team at the moment,” Moyo said.

The Warriors currently lie third in their qualifying pool with one point – five points behind group leaders Egypt.
