Only three Zim players heading to CAF
Former Highlanders Vice captain, Nqobizitha Masuku (29) is one of the three Zimbabwean players who claimed a spot in CAF’s Champions League as Jwaneng Galaxy, won the Be Mobile Premier League last month.
Masuku joined the Jwaneng Galaxy in the January transfer window, telling fans he had to secure enough finances for his family. His contributions to the squad have been immeasurable despite an earlier knock.

Dzvukamanja’s last gasp goal ensured a place for him and The Sea Robbers. The three will represent Zimbabwe on the continent at a time the country’s isolation continues following a blanket CAF and FIFA ban on footballing matters.
FC Platinum who won the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League last season and Bulawayo Chiefs who won Zimbabwe’s premier knockout tournament, the Chibuku Super Cup, won’t be taking part at the tournament.
While efforts to have Zimbabwe’s suspension from international football lifted took a giant leap towards finalisation yesterday when another high-level FIFA delegation held another key meeting with the Sport and Recreation Commission in Harare.
As was the case during their initial meeting in April, both FIFA and SRC kept a tight lid on their deliberations.
