How The 'New-Look' Zimbabwe-Warriors Could Line-Up Against Lesotho?

Zimbabwe-Warriors interim- coach, Wilson Mutekede have a daunting task of selecting his first eleven to face a strong Lesotho side ahead of their friendly encounter on Wednesday.

It is quite interesting to see how the former Shabane Mine mentor could tinker and tailor with the Warriors squad to accommodate the British-based quartet.

With the absence of skipper, Knowledge Musona and experienced Warriors goalkeeper George Chigova through injury, Mutekede could put his trust in the hands of highly anticipated 'British Brigade' stars of defender -Tendayi Darikwa, midfieder - Kundai Benyu, strikers - Macauley Bonne and Admiral Muskwe to continue their dominance over Lesotho.

Zimbabwe have won a record 14 times and drawn 4 times with one loss against Lesotho since 1981. Their last encounter was in July 2017 Cosafa Castle Cup where Zimbabwe won 3-4.

Soca263 take a look at how the Warriors could potentially line-up against a strong Lesotho side who have a home advantage and are looking to overcome their poor run against Zimbabwe.

Having hold a dominant record over Lesotho, Mutekede could opt for an attacking formation - thereby starting with an ordinary 4-3-3 system with Tendayi Darikwa and Dennis Dauda marshalling the defence. Qadr Amini and James Mukombwe could occupy the left and right back respectively to complete the back four.

The midfield could be comprised of Marvelous Nakamba as the central defensive midfielder, assisted by Kundai Benyu and Kudakwashe Mahachi who all have good passing abilities and can dribble in confined areas - to operate on the left and right midfield respectively.

The strikers could be spearheaded by Macauley Bonne, who is currently in fine goal-scoring form at Leyton Orient partnered by Tendai Ndoro and Admiral Muskwe.

Here is the probable First XI:

Edmore Sibanda, Jameson Mukombwe, Qadr Amini, Dennis Dauda,Tendai Darikwa, Marvellous Nakamba, Kundai Benyu, Kuda Mahachi, Macauley Bonne, Tendai Ndoro, Admiral Muskwe
