The former Zimbabwean international striker called time on his international career in October 2010 and his testimonial match is aimed at marking his retirement from international football.
His invitational team will play Zimbabwe’s senior national team on May 26 at the National Sports Stadium.
Mwaruwari, who played for Jomo Cosmos in South Africa and currently plays for English club Portsmouth, intends to invite Lucas Radebe, Steven Pienaar, Didier Drogba, Nwankwo Kanu, Jay-Jay Okocha, Michael Essien, Chris Katongo, Bruce Grobbelaar and Yakubu among a galaxy of current and former international stars.
Proceeds from the match will go to the Benjani Mwaruwari Foundation, which is a charity trust reportedly setting up a football academy in Zimbabwe’s second largest city, Bulawayo.
The former Zimbabwe captain was in Harare on Monday, where he had a meeting with Zifa president Cuthbert Dube and potential sponsors for the testimonial match. Follow me on Twitter @TTM16
