The former Warriors first choice goalkeeper, who has been sidelined since he announced his brief international retirement at the back of the failed trip to the 2013 Afcon, said he still had many years ahead of him in the national team.

The former Highlanders and Warriors captain said there was no way he could retire from the game so early. “There is no reason for me to retire from international duty. If I’m called to play for my country, I will still honour that call-up because I love playing for Zimbabwe,” said Kapini.

“I know that before I can return to the national team, I need to up my game at club level. I also know that it will take me some bit of time to become the Warriors’ Number One again, but I will continue fighting. I have played the game for long enough to understand that no-one is guaranteed a place in the team. The coaches will always choose the perfect people they believe will do the job in a particular assignment, so I will fight for my time back in the team.”

The Amazulu goalkeeper said he was delighted to see local players perform well in the recent game between Highlanders and Dynamos, saying this would augur well for the national team.
