Zimbabwe is in isolation as a result of a ban imposed by FIFA due to ‘third party interference’ after the SRC suspended the Felton Kamambo-led ZIFA board.

The 27-year-old, who plays for Stade de Reims in the French Ligue 1, took time to discuss the local football’s situation with some top FIFA officials at The Best FIFA Football Awards held last month.
