Zimbabwe national team, Warriors coach Kalisto Pasuwa has named experienced 26-man squad to face Malawi in a 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifier at home on June 5.

The coach has called upon big names like Tendai Ndoro, who plays in Orlando Pirates as  striker and unheralded Poland based midfielder Andrew Gwaze.

Triangle goalkeeper Tapiwa Chilenga has also been called up to the squad to face Malawi.

Pasuwa said he has been monitoring Gwaze who plays his club football in Poland turning out for relegated Gornik Zabrez.
“He has played for Monomotapa before and I have been monitoring him. I have some video of the matches he has played.

“We have an open door policy and there is no one who is guaranteed a place in the team,” said the coach.

Ndoro has been in top form for Orlando Pirates where he has scored five league goals in 10 starts.

The Warriors are expected to play against Uganda in a friendly match on Tuesday which they will use as a dress rehearsal for the match against Malawi.

Pasuwa depicted that Uganda were ranked above Zimbabwe and they would give his charges a good practice match ahead of the clash against Malawi.

“Uganda are a very strong team, they are ranked above us and they will give us a good practice match,” said Pasuwa.

The Warriors are set to go into camp on Sunday ahead of the Tuesday friendly.

Zimbabwe lead Group L with eight points and can qualify for the biennial soccer show case for the first time if they beat Malawi at home and Guinea fails to beat Swaziland.

Both Swaziland and Guinea are tied on five points each with Malawi at the foot of the table with two points.
