According to reports in Zimbabwe, the Warriors were expected to play Bafana Bafana in a friendly to prepare for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, but that game will no longer take place.

The Herald reports that Zifa decided that they would rather have the team focus on the upcoming Cosafa Cup, which will be played in South Africa next month.

Zimbabwe are set to spend a month in South Africa before travelling to Nigeria to face the Super Eagles in June and then going to the Afcon in Egypt.
