Defender Andrew Mbeba has been ruled out of the 2026 World Cup qualifier against South Africa at Free State tomorrow through suspension.

The towering defender, who gave a decent account in the 2-0 defeat against Lesotho at Orlando Stadium on Friday, picked up his third yellow card in the qualifiers in that game.

He had been booked in each of the opening two games of the competition against Rwanda and Nigeria in Rwanda last November.

Both those games ended in draws, with the Warriors playing a goalless stalemate against Rwanda before a 1-1 draw with the Super Eagles.

Mbeba will watch the match from the terraces with either Godknows Murwira or Munashe Garan’anga likely to step in.

Meanwhile, Devine Lunga who suffered an ankle sprain in the game against Lesotho has been certified fit to train.

The team will conduct their final session at Free State Stadium at 6pm today.

Lunga will be keen to quickly get back into the groove and back into the team.

He played well in the game against Lesotho.
