Former Warriors and Caps United left-back Cephas Chimedza has defended the Warriors technical team’s decision to call up Knowledge Musona for the upcoming AFCON qualifiers even though he has not been playing for his Belgian club.
Chimedza made the comments while responding to a report in Belgium which highlighted the debate surrounding the decision to call Musona for the matches against Botswana and Zambia. He said:
For our national team, he is important. Just like when (Thomas) Vermaelen was not playing (for) Barca but was always in the Rode Duivels (Red Devils, the Belgian national team).
Chimedza scored a goal for the Zimbabwe national team against the Black Stars of Ghana at the 2006 AFCON finals hosted by Egypt.
Meanwhile, Musona, who is expected to arrive in Zimbabwe this Wednesday, has not played competitively for his club Anderlecht in the Belgian top-flight league this season.
