Warriors get revamp for World Cup qualifier clash against Bafana Bafana

Zim Now Writer

The Zimbabwean Warriors will sport a significantly altered starting lineup for their crucial World Cup Qualifier match against South Africa's Bafana Bafana this evening. Kickoff is set for 6 pm at Free State Stadium.

Coach Jairos Tapera has opted for a complete overhaul of the team that lost to Lesotho last week. Notably, the formation has been switched from a 4-3-3 to a more defensive 3-5-2, suggesting a focus on shoring up the backline.

Goalkeeper Donovan Bernard is replaced by Manica Diamonds' Geoffrey Chitsumba, while the defense sees a complete reshuffle with Godknows Murwira and Munashe Garan'anga joining the starting eleven.

In midfield, Richard Hachiro is brought in for his work ethic and ability to disrupt the opposition's play. Upfront, the experienced Walter Musona partners with Douglas Mapfumo, aiming to create goal-scoring opportunities.
