THE era of selecting club-less players into the Warriors squad is now a thing of the past judging by a 24-member provisional squad that has been called into camp by interim coach Norman Mapeza.

The Warriors take on Ghana on 9 0ctober in the Western African country in a World Cup qualifier.

It had been the norm under axed Warriors coach Zdravko Logarušić for club-less players such as Ovidy Karuru and Jimmy Dzingai to find themselves in the national team.

Loga caused an uproar when he called the duo for the Warriors’ last assignment against Ethiopia and only buckled under public pressure to drop Karuru and Dzingai before the team trooped into camp.

In the latest squad, FC Platinum player Rahman Kutsanzira and South African based Knox Mutizwa got the nod from Mapeza and will be fighting for places in the final team that will travel to Ghana.

England-based players have also been called into camp as they are available for the game since Ghana is not on Britain’s Covid -19 red-list.
