Ndlovu, Nengomasha may still get call ups


Ndlovu was not in the Zifa’s squad of 25-players which Warriors new head coach Valinhos would like to use for what will be his first real assessment of the Zimbabwean team.

However, national team general manager Shariff Mussa has revealed that the squad is not conclusive.

Mussa says that meetings between Valinhos, his assistants David Mandigora and Brenna Msiska, team manager Ernest Sibanda and Zifa have been scheduled. Consultations will also have to be made with some of the players and their clubs, he added.

This means that players like Ndlovu, Kaizer Chiefs’ Tinashe Nengomasha, France-based Harrington Shereni, reigning CBZ Premiership Soccer Star of the Year Murape Murape, Poland-based Dickson Choto and Shingi Kawondera may still find their way into the final squad as Valinhos is still new to Zimbabwean players and may need a wider base to select the players.

Zimbabwe are chasing Egypt, Burkina Faso, Botswana, Tanzania, Mozambique and the Democratic Republic of Congo for possible friendly games before the Warriors play in the qualifiers for the 2010 World Cup/Nations Cup.

The Warriors’ first fixture will be away in Conakry, against Guinea, who are currently rated the third best in Africa.
