The Undertaker was a shock addition to the national team technical staff by Zifa last week, becoming the third assistant coach with Lloyd Chitembwe and Tonderayi Ndiraya.

It will be Mwaruwari’s first high profile and competitive match as a coach since acquiring his Uefa A coaching badge in June.

“He is already in camp with his colleagues. He arrived yesterday,” said Zifa spokesperson Xolisani Gwesela.

The players would have been quarantined for 10 days on their return after the international assignments. The Herald
