A list of 30 players has been revealed making up Zimbabwe’s provisional squad for the AFCON in Egypt as well as the 2019 COSAFA tournament.

Zimbabwe’s head coach Sunday Chidzambga will split the squad into two with one going to Egypt and the other taking part in the COSAFA tourney in Durban, South Africa.

The COSAFA tournament will kick off towards the end of this month while the AFCON finals will start on June 12th.

Khama Billiat, Knowledge Musona and Nyasha Mushekwi are the players expected to inspire the Warriors in their fourth ever AFCON tournament.

Leyton Orient striker Macaulay Bonne will have to wait for clearance from the Zimbabwe embassy in England to see that he takes part in the continental showpiece.

Zimbabwe is grouped in Group A alongside Uganda, Egypt and Democratic Republic of Congo.

The Warriors will open up the tournament against the hosts Egypt on June 12th.

The team will also face Nigeria, Ghana and Morocco in the pre-tournament friendlies.
