Norman Mapeza (Coach, Zimbabwe)

“The players we missed were a huge blow for us. They are players who have been a great help to us during the playoffs. We played very well against Senegal, holding them down until twenty seconds from the end. We had chances to win against Malawi, especially in the first half. So, we will try to retain the positive to get a good result against Guinea.”

Jordan Zemura (Defender, Zimbabwe)

“We are a bit sad by the absence of our colleagues. They bring confidence and experience to the group. We are ready to face Guinea and our main objective is to win. It is being a good experience, and personally I will leave this country with a lot of learning.”
