France-based Warriors duo, Tinotenda Kadewere and Marshall Munetsi have been barred from travelling for the back-to-back Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifying matches against Botswana and Zambia next week.
The French Football Federation on Wednesday night said:
The clubs of Ligue 1 Uber Eats and Ligue 2 BKT have decided to apply the Fifa circular of February 5, 2021, taking into account the travel restrictions in the world.
In this context, the clubs will not release foreign players summoned for matches outside the EU/EEA zone during the next international period in March.
The Warriors will also be missing Aston Villa midfielder Marvelous Nakamba, Wigan’s Tendayi Darikwa, Jordan Zemura (Bournemouth), Admiral Muskwe (Wycombe Wanderers), Brendan Galloway (Luton) and David Moyo (Hamilton Academical) due to similar travel restrictions.
On the positive, defenders Teenage Hadebe and Alec Mudimu as well as captain Knowledge Musona have confirmed their availability.
