Ahead of the highly anticipated 2017 CAF Africa Cup of Nations next weekend, Zimbabwe have also released their 23-man squad.

National team coach Kalisto Pasuwa released his squad on Friday, 6 January as he targets a knockout qualification.

However, before their trip to Cameroon, Zimbabwe have experienced tough times as they had a standoff with ZIFA in relation to match allowances and bonuses.

Just before heading to Gabon, the Warriors are expected to leave for Cameroon on Saturday night, where they will play an international friendly against the hosts, before they get the ball rolling against Algeria on January 15 at the Stade de Franceville.

Four days later, they take on Senegal before they conclude the group stages with a match against Tunisia at the Stade L’Ammitse in Libreville on January 23.

Zimbabwe, who will be making their third appearance after making it to Tunisia in 2004 and Egypt in 2006, have never progressed beyond the group stages.
