As he prepares for the upcoming Four Nations tournament in Zambia, Zimbabwe coach Sunday Chidzambwa has named a 20 member team to represent the country.

The Chipolopolo will be joined by neighbours Zimbabwe, Angola and South Africa for the tournament set for next week in Ndola.

It was announced that the event will run from March 21 - 24 and all games will be staged at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.

Although he named a strong squad, notable absentees include the inspirational trio of captain Knowledge Musona, Khama Billiat and Kudakwashe Mahachi due to injury.

ZPC Kariba goalkeeper Takabva Mawaya is joined by Caps United defender Praise Tonha, Jimmy Dzingai (Yadah Stars) and Devine Lunga (Chicken Inn).

"For us, the whole idea is for the technical team to assess the players at their disposal seeing that our team is on gradual transformation," Warriors team manager Wellington Mpandare said.
