Zimbabwe national team coach, Norman Mapeza, says the World Cup dream is over and now is the time to prepare for the Africa Cup of Nations finals in January.

Mapeza wants to stay on until after the Afcon finals and says he will use the two remaining World Cup qualifiers to build his team for the continental finals.

Ironically, Mapeza’s contract with Zifa runs until next month and long before the Afcon finals to be held in Cameroon in January, 2022.

Zimbabwe was walloped 3-1 by Ghana in the west African nation last weekend and fell 1-0 at home on Tuesday.
