The Warriors three nil victory against Tanzania on Sunday left coach Kalisto Pasuwa bubbling in confidence saying he is ready for AFCON finals.

Zimbabwe beat Tanzania in an international friendly match.

Knowledge Musona, Nyasha Mushekwi and Mathew Rusike got the goals.

With the three goals, he said he has no problem in that department.

Said Pasuwa after the match "Our aim was to assess how we keep the ball from our opponents.

"So we were inviting our opponents to come at us and I am happy with the way we defended and kept possession. But going forward, Nyasha (Mushekwi) came short, especially when he lost possession. I think we still need at least two more friendlies before Afcon for the team to gel".

On AFCON opponents he said "We had the chance to see Senegal and they are a team that easily gets frustrated and I think we can fare well at Afcon.

"They also use power play. Algeria also lost, but they are a very attacking team".

The Warriors will face Algeria, Senegal and Tunisia in the Afcon2017 finals to be held in Gabon in January.
