Warriors captain Knowledge Musona says his team should not concentrate their focus on Mohamed Salah ahead of the 2019 Afcon opener against hosts Egypt.
The tournament gets underway this Friday with the Group A rivals clashing at Cairo International Stadium.
The Pharaohs look strong on paper with Liverpool star Mohamed Salah leading the list along with Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny.
And with this Egyptian selection, Musona thinks Zimbabwe should focus on the whole team instead of the Reds’ man.
“We should not only aim at stopping Mohamed Salah but everyone on the field because if we make that mistake, then we are going to fight against Salah, we will be destroyed by someone we don’t know,” Musona told The Herald.
“We just have to make sure that we are strong in every position and we are ready to fight in every duel and also take the chances that we might have, we are not here to talk, we are here to play, we came here to fight and it’s gonna be a tough game.”
The encounter kicks off is at 10 pm Zimbabwean time and it will live on SuperSport TV.
