The Zimbabweans will play at Harare Sports Club following their 4-1 loss to Bosnia-Herzegovina after Moldova also lost their tie against Hungary.

Should Zimbabwe lose to Moldova, the southern African nation will be relegated to the Euro-Africa Zone Group Three while win will see them remain in the Euro-Africa Zone Group Two next year.

However, non-playing captain Martin Dzuwa believes playing at home will be an advantage to his team. “We need to work on our weaknesses. We still have time to do that and playing at home will be to our advantage,” said Dzuwa.

Zimbabwe were promoted into the Euro-Africa Zone Group Two after winning a ticket at the qualifiers held in Cairo, Egypt, last year.

The Zimbabwean team is made up of Takanyi Garanganga, Mark Fyn, Benjamin Lock and Wayne Black who has returned to play at the age of 41. Wayne Black partnered Fyn in the doubles against Bosnia-Herzegovina, but that form of old seems to have gone with age. Lock is the only one who won his match in the 4-1 defeat to the visitors.
