Zimbabwe's Highlanders Urge CAF, ZIFA To Speed Player Licensing

Zimbabwe's Highlanders Football Club is appealing to the Confederation of African Football and the Zimbabwe Football Association to licence three players by March 4 when it is scheduled to face Egyptian league champion Al Ahly in a Bulawayo home game in the next leg of the African Champions League tournament.

The three players were excluded from the last leg against Pamplemousse of Mauritius because their licenses had not been issued on time. The Highlanders returned home from Mauritius on Wednesday and went straight into camp to prepare for their next engagement, a Charity Shield match against Mwana Africa Saturday in Bindura.

Reporter Marvellous Mhlanga-Nyahuye asked Highlanders Chairman Ernest Sibanda if his club could overcome road fatigue in time for Saturday's cup match.
