“I would like to thank Zimbabwe for their hospitality,” he said. “This is my first time in Harare, so we feel warmly welcomed, and I am very happy to be here.”

He added: “As we all know, this is a very important match for us and we expect a tough match.

“We respect the team we are playing against and we have a clear target, which is to qualify for the World Cup so we are going to do everything in our power to put good performance tomorrow and try to win.”
