Sunday 'Mhofu' Chidzambwa has released the names of an 18-member squad to play away to Namibia in a Championship of African Nations (CHAN) second round qualifier on 16 July.

This being a tournament reserved for locally based players only, the COSAFA winning coach will infuse new players into the squad, at the same time dropping others who were part of the COSAFA triumph.

Despite being stretchered off in the final stages of the match against Zambia, Talent Chawapihwa will be fit to play a part in Zimbabwe's quest to qualify for the finals of the CHAN tournament.

Ocean Mushure, Gerald Takwara and Liberty Chakoroma are also among the eight Warriors carried over from the sub-regional tourney into the CHAN qualifier in Windhoek on Sunday.

Following impressive performances in the Champions League, Caps United's duo of Ronald Chitiyo and Abbas Amidu were included in the squad.

Chidzambwa was repaid by the Zimbabwe Football Association with further Warriors duties, having been initially pronounced as the COSAFA Cup coach exclusively.

His whole technical team also continues to along with him.

The game will be played at Sam Nujoma stadium at 1500 hours.
