SA clubs refuse to release players for Zimbabwe - Botswana friendly
Published: 06 January 2012 (2980 Views)
Zimbabwe Warriors will have to do without all foreign based players including the dozen from the South African PSL that they had called up for the friendly match against Afcon finals debutants Botswana.  

The match takes in Gaborone on Saturday afternoon.
 
Already nine South African based players who had been called up for the friendly have already withdrawn including veteran midfielder Tinashe Nengomasha who recently wedded his long time sweetheart Samantha Mtukudzi during the festive break.
 
The Warriors will now be also minus the rest of the PSL stars that they had called which includes Nyasha Mushekwi, Gilbert Mapemba, Thomas Sweswe, Jimmy Jambo, Lincoln Zvasiya, Khama Billiat, Tafadzwa Rusike and Willard Katsande for the road trip to the Botswana capital after their clubs refused to release them though they are all still on holiday in Zimbabwe.
 
Already Knowledge Musona, Edward Sadomba and Ovidy Karuru had pulled out leaving Zimbabwe with a hastily assembled squad of local based players for the match.
 
Botswana have put up camp in Rustenburg for the last couple of weeks preparing for the Afcon and will make the short road trip back to Gaborone on Friday for the match on Saturday. 

AmaZulu have became the latest South African club to inform Zifa that all three of their players Tapuwa Kapini, Carlington Nyadombo and Ramson Zhuwawo that had been called-up will not be made available for this non-Fifa calendar date match.
