Kaizer Chiefs  midfielder Willard Katsande is back in the Warriors squad after more than a year away from the national team.

After announcing that he is ready to come out of retirement last year, Katsande continued to be ignored but he has finally been brought back into the team by coach Sunday Chidzambwa.

Also making a return is captain Knowledge Musona, who was suspended for the home tie against DR Congo earlier this month after being red-carded in the reverse fixture in Kinshasa.
