Who will be No.1 against Uganda?

WARRIORS coach Sunday Chidzambwa faces a new dilemma.

Big goalkeeper George Chigova, who was suspended for the 2019 Afcon finals opener against Egypt, is now available for selection.

Edmore “Zikeeper” Sibanda started that game and impressed before he was pulled out injured in the 1-0 defeat.

Reports from Egypt say Sibanda did not train on Sunday but could just be fit to play against Uganda on Wednesday.

Add to this tricky situation, Elvis Chipezeze came in for Sibanda and impressed by keeping a clean sheet.

Now Chidzambwa will have to decide on whether his number one for the qualifiers comes back into the fray or stick with experience if “Zikeeper” passes a last minute fitness test.

Chipezeze at this point seems to have slim chances of starting.

“We have a number of players who need to be assessed at our full training session. I spoke to Eddie and Nyasha and they have not been complaining about their injuries getting worse,” Warriors manager Wellington Mpandare was quoted by The Herald.

The Warriors are now in a must-win clash with Uganda on Wednesday.

Uganda, who dismissed DRC 2-0 in their opener, are top of the group with a superior goal difference over Egypt.
