Zimbabwe will take on Madagascar in a COSAFA encounter on Wednesday, June 28. The Zimbabweans will be seeking to continue their winning record against their opponents, however, Madagascar is in good form.

Ghana will face off against Mexico in an international friendly on Thursday, June 28. The Black Stars will be hoping to end their losing streak against the Mexicans who will be fielding a weaker side going into the match.

Zimbabwe v Madagascar (COSAFA Cup)

FIFA rankings: Zimbabwe 115th &Madagascar 97th

Useful facts: In just two games between these two nations, Zimbabwe has had a solitary win, while the other match ended in a goalless draw. However, Zimbabwe won just one of their last five games, while Barea have won twice in that time frame.

Steve Lekoelea: Zimbabwe have quality players and they’ll win.

Mexico v Ghana (International friendly)

FIFA rankings:  Mexico 17th & Ghana 49th

Useful facts: In two friendly matches, back in 2008 and 2006, between the South Americans and the Black Stars, it was Mexico that came out with a win on both occasions. However, both games were decided by a single goal and to add to the uncertainty, Mexico will not be using their first-choice squad, with their senior players currently on Confederations Cup duty. With that said, Mexico has won four of their last six games and have lost just one of their last 15, while Ghana has lost five in that time frame.

Steve Lekoelea: Tough game for Ghana. Mexico is going to win.
