Warriors defender, Ronald Pfumbidzai, said that the national team will use the upcoming COSAFA tournament to fine-tune preparations for AFCON 2019.
The COSAFA tournament will be held in the South Africa port city of Durban a few weeks before the start of AFCON. Said Pfumbidzai:
I think we just have to take the Cosafa Cup seriously because that is the time we have to gel.

We will not get more time to do that since it’s unlikely that we will get more international friendlies between now and the Afcon tournament (apart from the Nigeria game).
So we have to treat those games as friendlies and also use the opportunity to bond and work on our formations.
Often, we don’t get these opportunities as a national team to get together and know each other better. So it’s a good platform since there will be competitive games.
But we have to keep focused (on Afcon).
Pfumbidzai now plays for South African club, Bloemfontein Celtic, which is reported to be on the verge of collapse due to financial challenges.
He said that he is not worried over the situation as he has hitherto been receiving his salary on time.
