African Football

After being drawn with Bafana Bafana in 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, the Zimbabwe Football Association have confirmed the appointment of Zdravko Logarusic as their new head coach.

The Warriors qualified for the group stage with interim manager Joey Antipas who led the team following Sunday Chidzambwa's resignation after the substandard displays at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

During his two-years with Sudan, he led them to third place at the 2018 African Nations Championship in Morocco and to the 2022 World Cup Cup qualifiers groups.
