Former Kaizer Chiefs striker Knowledge Musona is aiming to make history at his third Africa Cup of Nations with Zimbabwe.
The Warriors were drawn in Group B alongside 2019 finalists, Senegal, Guinea and Malawi, with their first clash taking place on Monday.
However, Zimbabwe have never made it past the group stages at a Africa Cup of Nations tournament but Musona hopes to change that this year.
“I have already played at two Afcon finals without progressing to the knockout stages,” the Al-Tai striker told the CAF website.
“Doing it now will mean a lot to me as an individual and to the whole team because it will be historic for every player. It’s an opportunity for us to show that we can perform at big tournaments like Afcon.”
The Warriors will be without the likes of Marvellous Nakamba and Marshall Munetsi, but Musona is confident can still compete.
“It’s unfortunate that we are missing some players who were with us during the qualifiers because of injuries and other issues, but I think we still have the quality to compete with any team," added Musona.
“I definitely think that we are going to have a good tournament, especially with the preparations that we have done so far, and what we will still do in the remaining days.”
