The England-born striker who plays for Leyton Orient in England was initially left out of coach Sunday Chidzabga's, Warriors 34 Men Provisional Squad announced this week, but the Bonne insisted on his Twitter account he would be travelling to Egypt with Zimbabwe for the Africa Cup of Nations 2019.

Sunday Chidzabga believes Bonne is worth including into the Warriors Afcon team because he scores goals,

In an interview Sunday Chidzabga said,

“A player like Bonne, when he has a valid passport, he is worth carrying to the AFCON finals,” said Chidzambwa.

“He scores goals.

“If he secures a passport, we will consider him. We have named 34 players which we are going to trim to 23 players.

"But, if Bonne sorts out his documents, we will have him in the team.”

Bonne has scored 20+ goals in back to back seasons in England's lower Football Divisions, with 23 goals this season in the National League with Leyton Orient and has been likened to Leicester City FC's legend, Jammie Vardy, by pundits in the British media.

“I may need to refer to ZIFA to comment on that because they are the ones handling the issue now,” said Gore.

”We facilitated the stuff from the UK and ZIFA are taking care of everything on this side.

“Obviously, there have been a lot of speculation here. But what I can safely say is that the process, on the other side, has been very smooth.

"I have spoken with Macauley and he knows he needs to have his passport in place to be able to play so he is fully aware of that." Source: The Herald.
