Zimbabwe FA boss sets sights on maiden World Cup qualification


After qualifying for the Africa Cup of Nations for the fifth time, Zimbabwe Football Association president Felton Kamambo has set his sights on steering the Warriors to their greatest success story by qualifying for the 2022 World Cup finals in Qatar.

Zimbabwe have never qualified for football’s biggest showcase.

The closest they came to qualification was with the Dream Team under the late Reinhard Fabisch in the ’94 World Cup qualifiers.

“I want World Cup qualification and to pass the group stages (of the Nations Cup finals),’’ Kamambo told The Herald.

“South Africa and Ghana are not playing good football, which makes our chances very bright.’’

The Zifa boss believes the current golden generation can become the first Zimbabwean team to play at the Fifa World Cup. “Qatar 2022 is something we can achieve if we continue to work together. Go Warriors Go!”

Zimbabwe first qualified for the Afcon in 2004 and were at the 2006 finals. Their recent qualification is the third successive after 2017 and 2019. However, they are yet to go beyond the group stage.

The Warriors lost their dead rubber tie against Zambia 2-0 at the National Sports Stadium in Harare a week ago.
