Soweto to host Billiat and Co. in qualifier


SAFA has confirmed that Zimbabwe will use a South African venue for the Warriors' 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Algeria.

ZIFA chief executive Joseph Mamutse is said to have sealed a contract with SAFA on Monday for the game to be played at Orlando Stadium in Soweto.

CAF has banned stadiums in Zimbabwe from hosting football as they don't meet international standards and ordered ZIFA to look for an alternative venue for the match scheduled for 31 March.
