2026 WCQ: Zimbabwe Players Shelve Strike, Return To Training Ahead Super Eagles Clash

The Warriors of Zimbabwe started preparations for their 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifier against the Super Eagles of Nigeria in Kigali on Friday (today).

The Warriors boycotted training on Thursday demanding their dues from the Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA).

According to the Herald, ZIFA had to run around to ensure they deposited the money into the players’ accounts on Thursday night to avert another stand-off ahead of the clash with the Super Eagles.

  • To beat Nigeria a single attempt can result in a goal. Zimbabwe should just park the bus, this Super Eagles doesn’t have creativity to unlock defence very very very weak defensively. Technically and tactically inept, no meaningful managerial know how.
