Baroka FC goalkeeper Elvis Chipezeze says he is delighted to make the 23-man Zimbabwe national team squad for the Africa Cup of Nations.
The Telkom Knockout Player of the Tournament was amongst the notable absentees in the Warriors' recent COSAFA Cup squad that had the likes of George Chigova, Edmore Sibanda and Petros Mahari as goalkeepers instead.
"I am a very happy my man, representing the country is something I have always wished for," Chipezeze tells KickOff.com.
"It really means a lot to me. Like I've always said in my past interviews, it's always good to be recognised and given a chance to represent your country. So for now I'm just concentrating on that.
"Because there are so many good goalkeepers out there so I can't say I am the best but there are many good goalkeepers up there so I'm just enjoying the moment you know, like I said it's something special to me to represent the country in the AFCON."
