There is an air of excitement in Warriors Camp with the centre of attraction being Germany based teenage starlet, Jonah Fabisch and new Assistant coach, Benjani Mwaruwari.
A national team call up is something every player dreams of and it is no different for Germany based teenage starlet, Jonah Fabisch who is excited at the prospect of representing his country in the World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and Ethiopia.
Just the name Fabisch alone carries weight with his father Reinhard Fabisch having led the famous dream team which came within 90 minutes of qualifying for the 1994 World Cup in the USA.
“It makes more special to play here as my father was a coach here for the national team, because he coached here that’s how he met my mother, I definitely have a huge connection in Zimbabwe most of my family is based here.”
Away from Fabisch, the Warriors technical team’s new recruit, former captain Benjani Mwaruwari, who is the third National team assistant coach, is delighted to be back in the Warriors fold.
“Well so far so good as for the experience I might not have the experience of coaching but I’m familiar with what is happening you know football is all the same,” Mwariwari said.
Meanwhile, two players who were set to be part of the team, striker Knox Mutizwa and midfielder Butholezwe Ncube have tested positive for COVID-19 and will no longer join camp ahead of the World Cup Qualifier against South Africa on Friday.
The Zimbabwe Football Association confirmed on their Facebook page that the two South African based players were yet to join camp after they arrived late in the country.
With the non-availability of the duo, the revised Warriors squad is now down to 24 players.
