LEICESTER City striker Admiral Muskwe is happy to be part of the Warriors squad set for two friendlies against Lesotho and Namibia.
Muskwe was part of three UK-based players that arrived in the country yesterday. He arrived midday along with Tendai Darikwa and Macauley Bonne.
The Warriors face Lesotho on Wednesday and then Namibia on Saturday.
Muskwe could not hide his excitement after they received a surprise welcome from a group of Warriors fans at Harare International Airport.
“I am very happy to be in the Warriors team. It is my first time to play for the national team and I feel very honoured,” Muskwe said.
“It’s so good to be home. The welcome is very warming, I never expected this, but it shows the support we have back home.”
Muskwe is expected to compete for a place in a team that also have strikers Evans Rusike from Maritzburg, Bonne, Tinotenda Kadewere from Djurgardens in Sweden and AL Faisaly’s Tendai Ndoro.
In the long-term, he will also have to compete for a place in the team with captain Knowledge Musona.
“I haven’t met most of the guys that are in the team except the two guys that I have travelled with, I will get to know them when I get in camp.
“I have been following Zimbabwean football though,” Muskwe said.
At Leicester, Muskwe is largely viewed as a long term replacement for Jamie Vardy.
