Kaizer Chiefs forward Khama Billiat may miss Zimbabwe’s 2022 World Cup qualifiers against Somalia.
The Warriors of Zimbabwe are set to battle Somalia in a first round World Cup qualifier this week, and Billiat’s reported injury may prove a huge blow.
Chiefs confirmed today that Biliat’s suffered a waist knock during last week Tuesday’s 2-1 win over Cape Town City.
“Billiat got a knock to his right pelvic bone during The Amakhosi’s 2-1 win in their away Absa Premiership encounter that took place last Tuesday against Cape Town City, he has had a scan done and it is unclear how long he needs to recover at this stage,” stated the club on their website.
The first leg, which will be the debut for caretaker coach Joey Antipas, is set for Thursday in Djibouti before the Warriors take Somalia to Bulawayo on Sunday 8 September.
