ZIMBABWE national team coach Ian Gorowa says the technical team did their best to prepare the Warriors for the African Nations Cup preliminary round qualifier against Tanzania in Dar-as-Salaam on Sunday.

Gorowa and his troops left Harare around midday today on an Ethiopian Airways flight and will make a stop-over in Addis Ababa.

Speaking as he checked in at the Harare Airport, Gorowa said he was hoping for the best and believes the task is now upon the players to deliver a positive result against the Taifa Stars.

“We did our best in terms of preparation and it’s now up to the players. We did not have the ideal preparations but we are not complaining. The attitude is that we should go and get a win. Most of these players have been at the Chan tournament before, so playing in the qualifiers is not going to be a big transition for them,” he said.

From the 19 players who were in camp, Gorowa has dropped goalkeeper Munyaradzi Diya while Patson Jaure is the team captain. The Warriors drew 0-0 with Tanzania on their last visit to East Africa for a match in November last year.
