Warriors captain Knowledge Musona hails Billiat. Musona saluted Billiat for his contribution to the national team. He was responding to a tweet by Billiat. “Well served Warrior. You fought a good fight mfana Wangu,” wrote Musona.

Warriors captain Knowledge Musona has become the latest player to pay tribute to Khama Billiat following his retirement from international football.

Billiat has described his decision to retire from international football as the ‘heaviest’ in his life. Billiat announced his retirement through a statement he posted on his social media platforms.

“. . . every story no matter how beautiful has an ending. This is probably the heaviest decision I have ever had to take in my life, but it is a decision I make with a patriotic heart,” said Billiat.

His decision comes at a time the Warriors are expected to participate at the Afcon finals in Cameroon in January next year.

“It was all a dream. When I was young, I always dreamt of representing my country, playing for the national team. The dream which seemed far-fetched for a young Khama in Mufakose came when I least expected it.

“The first day I donned the Warriors badge, I vowed to enjoy myself and always lift the country’s spirits. “Scoring a goal at the Africa Cup of Nations finals is one moment I still relive in my mind even up to date. It is one of the many special moments I have experienced wearing the coveted yellow jersey.

“The feeling of scoring in a packed stadium for your nation is inexplicable.

“I have met so many teammates, coaches at the national team and I appreciate every relationship I have built along the way. By playing for the Warriors, I have improved immensely as a player it is an opportunity I will forever cherish,” said Billiat.

Billiat, 31, said he made the decision to pave way for the new generation.

“Like those who had to pave way for our generation of Warriors stars to emerge, I have decided to retire from international football. I believe it is now time for me to pave way for new talent to blossom and serve the country in the same way that I did, or even better.

I will forever be indebted to those who took a chance on me and moulded me into the international player I grew to become. Thank you Zimbabwe for supporting me and my teammates, for showing the love with each outing,” he said.
