Tendai Ndoro fails to crack Zimbabwe XI

Posted: 23 January 2017 Time: 20:03

Orlando Pirates striker Tendai Ndoro has once again failed to crack into Zimbabwe’s starting XI for their crunch Group B encounter against Tunisia this evening.

Despite his 11 goals in 13 league appearances for Bucs so far this season, Ndoro has found himself down the pecking order in the national team, playing second-fiddle behind the likes of Knowledge Musona, Nyasha Mushekwi and Evans Rusike.

He did however receive 45 minutes of action in their last encounter, coming on for Kudakwashe Mahachi at the start of the second half in The Warriors’ 2-0 loss to Africa’s top-ranked side Senegal.

Musona, who was side-lined through injury in that encounter, is thrown back into the starting line-up for the must-win encounter, and will lead the line alongside Nyasha Mushekwi, with Mamelodi Sundowns’ Khama Billiat in support.

PSL-based Onismor Bhasera and Danny Phiri also start, and will be captained by Kaizer Chiefs hard-man Willard Katsande.

Joining Ndoro on the bench is Mahachi and Maritzburg United frontman Evans Rusike.

Zimbabwe XI vs Tunisia: Mkuruva, Zvirekwi, Nhamoinesu, Bhasera, Muroiwa, Katsande, Nakamba, Phiri, Billiat, Mushekwi, Musona

Tunisia XI vs Zimbabwe: Jeridi, Nagguez, Abdennour, S. Ben Youssef, Mâaloul, Sassi, Ben Amor, Sliti, Khazri, Msakni, Khenissi
