AFCON 2019: Zimbabwe plans friendly with Super Eagles
As the kickoff date for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Egypt approaches, countries are making plans to have a successful outing.
For Zimbabwe, they are planning three friendly matches prior to the AFCON tournament, and one of those games is against Nigeria's Super Eagles.
The friendly encounter, according to president of the Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) Felton Kamambo will likely take place in Nigeria.
“We will also go to Nigeria where we intend to play a game in Nigeria, but that is yet to be confirmed,” Kamambo told the Herald.
“We are still working on contractual agreements. I think we will play three serious friendly matches that will afford the coaches a chance to finetune their squad ahead of the tournament.”
Zimbabwe is drawn in Group A alongside host Egypt, DR Congo and Uganda.
