June 26 2017 – ZIMBABWE and Mozambique will play the first COSAFA Castle Cup Group B match at the Moruleng Stadium in the North West province on Monday in what is expected to be a close encounter.
Zimbabwe have brought a strong squad to the tournament under coach Sunday Chidzambwa, with whom they last lifted the trophy in 2009.
And although Mozambique have rested many of their regulars, they are a country renowned for producing exciting players and will certainly be keen to get their tournament off to a positive start.
The later match in the pool sees Madagascar take on Seychelles as the latter look to end a barren run in the competition that has seen them claim just a single victory in their 19 previous matches.
Madagascar look to have brought a strong squad as well and will hope to replicate their run to the semifinals in 2015. – ANA
