Both matches are important to us. We are almost done with our squad, we are finalizing. And I was told that we have to assemble 30 players for COSAFA.
We want to get into the final, we always want to win the tournament. We will be going there to win.
Chidzambga further revealed that he is looking forward to the friendly match against Nigeria as the most populous nation in Africa is one of the biggest teams on the continent. He said:
If we get to the finals, I think we will have to select from the 30 players a team to go to Nigeria.
The Nigeria game is important for us because we need to assess ourselves. This is a practice match for us and it will be good for us because we will know where we need to work on.
Nigeria is one of the biggest teams in Africa so this match is important for us as we prepare for AFCON.
