I need my internationals to come back in top form – Nyirenda

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Baroka FC head coach Wedson Nyirenda hopes that his players going on international duty for their respective 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers come back focused.

Number one goalkeeper Elvis Chipezeze and his junior in the goals position Lloyd Kazatua will be away with Zimbabwe and Namibia respectively.

Captain Gerald Phiri Jr and his Malawian countryman Richard Mbulu have been called up at the Flames.

Manuel Kambala and Terrence Tisdell have been invited to represent Mozambique and Liberia respectively. Nyirenda says despite the different playing philosophies he needs the internationals to return injury free and on top of their game.

The Bakgaga mentor also warned all his charges not to let the results in their last two Absa premiership matches get to their heads.

The Ga-Mphahlele based outfit grabbed four points from a possible six to move to 12th spot on the log with the same number of points from 11 encounters.

Nyirenda says Baroka cannot afford to fall into the same trend again. – Report by Lethabo Kganyago
