Manchester United will also play Ajax Cape town at the Cape Town Stadium on 21 July before proceeding to China for more games. Kapini is set to be in goals for USuthu, a side he captained last season and will have to contend with the Red Devils striking duo of Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck who are currently with the England squad at the EURO 2012 games.

Portuguese Nani and Frenchman Patrice Evra are also with their respective national teams at the games co-hosted by Poland and Ukraine. Other Zimbabwean players set to play the 19-time English Premier League champions are Kapini’s teammates at Amazulu defender Carlington Nyadombo and midfielder Ramson Zhuwawo.

Zimbabweans Tafadzwa Rusike and Khama Billiat who play for Ajax Cape town will also get a chance to rub shoulders with the world’s best football players. Manchester United finished second last season behind rivals Manchester City. Radio VOP
