THE Warriors have received a major boost ahead of their 2022 World Cup qualifier against Ghana following the arrival of defenders Teenage Hadebe and Brandon Galloway.

Zimbabwe take on the Black Stars on Saturday at the Cape Coast Stadium in the first of their back-to-back battles whose return leg will be played at the National Sports Stadium on Tuesday.

Yet there were concerns over the availability of the pair for Saturday’s match after they encountered some logistical glitches.

Hadebe missed his flight and several attempts for him to fly to the West African country were fruitless while Galloway had problems being cleared to enter Ghana.

However, the issues have since been rectified and the two have already joined their teammates in Cape Coast.

Galloway arrived last night while Hadebe joined his teammates this morning.

Warriors manager Wellington Mpandare confirmed the duo are now in Ghana.

“Galloway arrived last night and Hadebe has jetted in this morning. They will be training with the rest of the squad in the afternoon and everything is looking fine,” said Mpandare.

Zimbabwe will be looking to cover the ground they have already lost in Group G after picking a single point in the opening two rounds of the pool qualifiers.

They sit at the foot of the four-team log, three points adrift of leaders South Africa who have their own back-to-back battles against Ethiopia, who like Ghana have three points to their name.
