“I think the draw is a good draw for us. Of course we are playing against very good players. I have seen DR Congo from our previous qualifier campaign, we finished above them so we will play them with confidence.

“The Egypt game is going to be difficult, they have many quality players and they have played in the World Cup. We have to respect Uganda as well; I’m sure all three games are going to be tough but I have confidence in each game,” said Tendai.

Given Warriors coach, Sunday Chidzambwa, fields Tendai Darikwa in the first XI, Darikwa will likely be marking Mohomed Salah (Liverpool) who usually plays on the right wing.

“Yeah dealing with Mo Salah is going to be a tough task, he is one of the best players in the world right now. But it’s a task I am looking forward to and in the Egyptian team there’s a lot of players we need to be focused on as well.

“I don’t think we have a plan on how to stop him but I think as a team we can try to do things to stop the Egyptians in the opening game,” said Darikwa. Hmetro.
