ZIFA vice-president Omega Sibanda said:

It is football, you win some, and you lose some.

If you win a COSAFA tournament everyone would be playing with hearts out to beat you. We will continue to fulfil matches on FIFA dates because with the team not playing in the World Cup qualifiers it is going to be a long inactivity for our teams until March when the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers resume.
