2 SA-based Warriors test positive for Covid-19

2 SA-based Warriors test positive for Covid-19. ZIFA spokesperson Xolisani Gwesela said the two players returned positive results when they conducted routine PCR tests in South Africa as they were about to report for national team camp.

The Zimbabwe national team have been forced to drop two players who tested positive for Covid-19 ahead of the opening Group G World Cup football qualifier against South Africa. The names of the players are yet to be published.

“I can confirm that there have been two positive cases reported. These guys were supposed to fly to Zimbabwe from South Africa for the World Cup games game but after the positive tests, it means it is no longer possible for them to come.

“They have since been advised to take the necessary measures in line with the Covid-19 health protocols. The coaches will decide if they will replace them or not,” said Gwesela.

The Warriors are set to host South Africa at the National Sports Stadium on Friday. They will then fly out of the country to face Ethiopia in their second Group G match in Bahir Dar, a city that is approximately 500km away from the capital, Addis Ababa.
