The Zimbabwe national football team are keen to reach the African Cup of Nations knockout stage and are in the process of scheduling warm-up matches against Nigeria.
Zimbabwe Football Association President, Felton Kamambo says plans for a warm-up game against the Super Eagles of Nigeria are at an advanced stage.
The date for the friendly match against Nigeria are yet to be revealed.
Meanwhile, former Super Eagles’ defender, Bright Omokaro has told Coach Gernot Rohr that he needs more than just the presence of foreign-based players in his team to excel at the Egypt 2019 African Nations Cup.
Omokaro said the Super Eagles’ manager must be ready to galvanize his players psychologically and get them go the extra mile if he desired success in Egypt.
Speaking with The Guardian yesterday, Omokaro said that all the 24 teams in the Nations Cup were hungry for success, warning that the Eagles risked early exit if the team failed to do the right things, including playing as a cohesive unit and fighting for victory in every game.
He, however, praised Rohr for his ability to keep the Super Eagles in top form despite failing to excel at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
He added, however, that Nigeria must see their group opponents, including Guinea, Burundi and Madagascar as teams capable of derailing the country’s ambitions in Egypt.
