Zimbabwe’s national team stand-in coach Joey Antipas has named his provisional squad to battle Lesotho in a CHAN 2020 qualifier.
One of the surprise selections of the group is Evans Katema. The striker’s injury has not prevented a call up, while Joel Ngodzo returns after missing an invitation for the first leg.
