As things stand now there is no confirmation in place for an international fixture for the Warriors. We had received some enquiries from Equatorial Guinea, Tanzania, Swaziland and Lesotho but what stopped us from being able to confirm any of those games were the financial commitments that ZIFA had. During the COSAFA Women’s tournament there were a lot of financial commitments that we had to deal with and as a result we could not confirm anything for the Warriors. In fact on the day of the Women’s final (Septmber24) it was the deadline day by which we should have confirmed our international friendlies to FIFA.

Mabhena said that they are now working on getting funds to fully use the last available dates for 2017, which will be November 6-14.
