The Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) has cancelled an international friendly match between Zimbabwe and Botswana which was slated for the weekend at the National Sports Stadium for reasons they said were beyond their control.
In a statement, ZIFA said the training camp for the warriors is still on despite the cancellation of the friendly match.
“The training camp for the Warriors will still go ahead until the end of the international break.
“This will give the technical team more time to assess their options ahead of the crucial FIFA World cup qualifiers against Rwanda and Nigeria in November.” Reads the statement.
