"I have represented Zimbabwe just once in a friendly match against Morocco about half-a-dozen years ago.

"I am happy to be back in the team and I am grateful for the faith shown in me by the technical team.

"I promise to work hard, very hard to justify my inclusion in the team. I will give everything and leave everything on the pitch.

"Obviously Algeria are the continental champions and they have the form at the moment.

"It takes an out of the ordinary team to go for an incredible 20 matches without conceding defeat.

"That shows their class as a unit. They are a massive team and they have the pedigree and quality in their ranks.

"We know exactly what they are capable of doing and we are braced up for the challenge."

"While Algeria's current form is incredible, we remain confident as a team that we can squeeze a result both away and at home. 

"Look, we have always done well against them even when the chips are down on our side.

"We are Zimbabwe and they know we are the Warriors, fighters."
