The squad is expected to go into camp on November 21 for the tournament that is expected to run from December 1-10 in Botswana. Team manager Eddie Chivero, whose side is caged in the same pool as last year’s surprise package — Namibia, Angola and Madagascar — said he hopes the surviving members from last year’s edition will help the country’s cause.
Zifa communications manager Nicky Dhlamini-Moyo said all the players called into camp should bring their travelling documents. Squad:
