South Africa's Absa Premiership is providing the
bulk of Zimbabwe’s national soccer team players when they host western
neighbours Botswana in the first round of Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon)
2021 qualifying tie on Friday evening.

The sides clash at the National Sports Stadium in Harare before Zimbabwe
travels to Zambia for another Southern African derby against northern
neighbours Zambia.

Warriors acting head coach, Joey Antipas, formerly of South African side
Amazulu, has picked 10 footballers plying their trade in the Absa
Premiership for the Warriors.
Among them is Kaizer Chiefs forward Khama Billiat and Lamontville Golden
Arrows and Premiership leading goalscorer, Knox Mtizwa.

Mtizwa's Arrows teammate Devine Lunga is also part of the Warriors while
several other South African-based players, including Terrence Dzukamanja
(Bidvest Wits), Kudakwashe Mahachi (SuperSport United) and the AmaZulu
duo of Ovidy Karuru and Butholwezi Ncube were also called.

Ronald Pfumbidzai (Bloemfontein Celtic), Kelvin Moyo (Chippa United) and
Baroka FC goalkeeper Elvis Chipezeze are also in the Warriors side.

They join overseas-based players such as Aston Villa midfielder,
Marvellous Nakamba, former Orlando Pirates and French-based Marshall
Munetsi, Tino Kadewere (France), English-based star, Macauley
Bonne, former Chiefs and Turkish based Teenage Hadebe, and Alec Mudimu (Cefn Druids
AFC).

Locally-based players include Prince Dube, Ian Nekati, Partson Jaure,
Talbert Shumba and Cliff Moyo who play in the domestic premiership league.

Thabani Kamusoko of Young Africans in Tanzania has also been selected.
