WARRIORS and Mamelodi Sundowns left-back Divine Lunga is expected to report late for the national team camp after missing his Monday morning flight from Johannesburg to Harare.

Lunga, who is yet to play competitively since moving to South African champions Sundowns from Golden Arrows, is expected to join the Warriors camp on Monday night or Tuesday morning.

Giving an update on the Warriors’ preparations for the 2022 World Cup qualifiers against South Africa at the National Sports Stadium on Friday and the away trip to Ethiopia four days later, Warriors’ manager Wellington Mpandare said France-based midfielder Marshal Munetsi and goalkeeper Martin Mapisa are arriving on Tuesday.

“The rest of the guys have arrived, with a few touching down this evening. We are hoping Divine Lunga, who missed his flight from Johannesburg, might squeeze in tonight and if he fails, he should be in tomorrow alongside Munetsi and Mapisa. Everyone should be in for the first training session we will have on Tuesday at 3pm,” said Mpandare.
