Zimbabwe beat Zambia 3-1 in the Cosafa Castle Cup final on Sunday 9 July 2017

The Warriors and Chipolopolo will clash at Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace on Sunday with either side aiming at a record-breaking fifth title.

Nyirenda said in an interview on Wednesday that the Chipolopolo will be ready for battle.

Sunday's final will also be the fourth time the Warriors and Chipolopolo will be meeting in a COSAFA Castle Cup decider with Zimbabwe having previously won two meetings at Mmabatho Stadium in Mafikeng under Charles Mhlauri and Rufaro with Chidzambwa in charge.

Zambia's triumphant Cosafa Cup winning side from 2013 after their victory over Zimbabwe in the final.

"Since we are scoring goals it makes players have that urge to want to play more and when you score the game becomes much easier for you and psychologically the fatigue is not felt that much".

"We really need to fully concentrate in every phase of the game", Chidzambwa said.

Shonga said ahead of the Zimbabwe duel, "We just have to work on ball possession".

A year later, Zimbabwe beat Zambia 1-0 on aggregate to qualify for the 2014 Africa Nations Championship finals held in South Africa.

Zambia came from behind to thrash Tanzania 4-2 at Moruleng Stadium on Wednesday with striker Justin Shonga netting a double, while Brian Mwila and Jackson Chirwa contributed a goal apiece.

"Let me congratulate my boys for the good performance".

"I don't know", he told Cosafa media.

Nyirenda said it is good to reach the final.

The make up of both of the 2017 teams is similar, with restrictions on the players both countries could call-up for the tournament which sits outside of Fifa's co-ordinated global calendar when clubs are obliged to release players.

"They played very well and at the same time we conceded very soft goals".

UFC 213: Amanda Nunes Looks Towards Stardom
Wise on why Nunes will win: The champ feels like she's still not getting respect from fans - or the company for that matter. She now calls Peru home, but trains for her fights largely in Thailand and the U.S. "I will be very strong".

"Zambia have only played two games and we have played five, so my players were exhausted", Mayanga said.

Zambia coach Wedson Nyirenda has no foreign-based players or any from Zanaco and Zesco United, due to their participation in African club competition.

Lesotho gave us a very torrid time.

It is expected that the final will keep up that tight rivalry, even if Zambia should be markedly fresher than their southern neighbours.

It is a chance for him to win a third Cosafa Cup title after previous success in 2003 and 2009; his unbeaten record in the competition is 12 wins and two draws. So, if the opponents target me and pay too much attention on me, it will be to our advantage as it will create more opportunities for others.

Chawapiwa, full of dribbling wizardry, dispossessed Bokang Sello in the 63rdminute before rifling the ball into the roof of the net leaving the Likuena goal minder Likano Mphuthi clutching thin air. "After scoring we went to sleep and conceded", Chidzambwa said.
