SuperSport United Striker Evans Rusike says they are ready for their Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) opening clash on Friday against the record seven-time African champions and hosts Egypt at the Cairo International Stadium.
While they go into this clash as underdogs, he believes they could pull a rabbit out a hat and surprise all and sundry.
The Warriors are pitted in Group A along with hosts Egypt, DR Congo and Uganda.
Rusike scored nine league goals in 27 league appearances, including two in the last game of that season against Jomo Cosmos as Maritzburg retained their PSL status.
Zimbabwe played to a 1-1 draw against Tanzania behind the closed doors in their final AFCON warm-up match at El Sekka El Hadid Stadium in Cairo on Sunday.
Oh yes, I also spoke to Evans Rusike this afternoon regarding the reports linking him to Chloorkop & Naturena. I’ll release the full clip when the story has gone on air tomorrow. #sabcnews #CosafaCup @SPORTATSABC pic.twitter.com/NyFNbybKr4
