Josta passport expected today

Sport Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe Warriors midfielder Joel Ngodzo is expecting his passport today (Thursday), ahead of the reverse fixture against Mauritius in Bulawayo on Sunday.

The CAPS United midfielder’s omission from the initial Warriors squad was not well received. Ngodzo was later called into camp but failed to travel last week as he did not have a valid passport.

He told ZTN that he is now expecting his passport today following the completion of necessary paperwork.  

“I was told it is coming today, so I am expecting the passport today, for now I do not know what is the development.

“It is painful that I could not take part in the first leg because I do not have proper travelling documents.

“The issue is that my passport expired three weeks ago and there were challenges in obtaining a new one because of queues but I hope the issue will now be sorted,” said Ngodzo.

Zimbabwe is carrying a healthy 4-0 lead going into the return leg that will be played at home in Bulawayo on Sunday.
