Zimbabwe Warriors Prepare to Tackle Swaziland in Championship of Nations Round

Zimbabwe will be sending a squad composed entirely of locally based players in keeping with CHAN's objective of bolstering domestic talent

Zimbabwe's Warriors soccer team is getting ready for its African Championship of Nations first round match against Swaziland in Mbabane on the weekend.

Coach Sunday Chidzambwa told VOA Studio 7 reporter Marvellous Mhlanga Nyahuye that the squad will not include foreign-based players as the tourney is for those competing in their national leagues.

The Championship of Nations aims to strengthen local teams, hence the exclusion of foreign-based players.

The finals of the 2011 CHAN competition will be held in Sudan from January 21 to February 10.
