Bonne Left Out of Zimbabwe Squad
Wednesday, 29th Sep 2021 13:45
Blues striker Macauley Bonne has been left out of the Zimbabwe squad for their World Cup qualifiers against Ghana early in October.
The seven-goal frontman’s omission comes as a surprise given his form for Town and after he was named in the initial party for the internationals earlier this month, although the 25-year-old ultimately didn’t travel due to EFL clubs not releasing players for matches in countries on the Government's red list.
Ghana, who host the first match on Saturday 9th October, isn’t on the red list, but Zimbabwe still is and ZIFA [the Zimbabwe FA] say discussions are ongoing regarding the involvement of the English-based players included in the squad in the game in Harare on Tuesday 12th October.
Bonne being left out of the Zimbabwe squad means it’s less likely Town’s home game with Shrewsbury on Saturday 9th October will be postponed due to international calls.
Midfielder Sam Morsy has already been named in the Egypt squad, while Bersant Celina seems likely to be included by Kosovo for their games in Sweden on Saturday 9th October and at home to Georgia three days later. Both Sweden and Kosovo are on the amber list.
Zimbabwe: Martin Mapisa (Zamora CF), Talbert Shumba (Free State Stars), Washington Arubi (Marumo Gallants), Alec Mudimu (Torpedo Kutaisi), Brendan Galloway (Plymouth Argyle), Bruce Kangwa (Azam), Jordan Zemura (AFC Bournemouth), Onismor Bhasera (SuperSport United), Rahman Kutsanzira (FC Platinum), Teenage Hadebe (Houston Dynamo), Tendayi Darikwa (Wigan Athletic), Blessing Sarupinda (Sekhukhune United), Farai Madhanaga (Marumo Gallants), Kelvin Madzongwe (FC Platinum), Khama Billiat (Kaizer Chiefs), Kudakwashe Mahachi (SuperSport United), Marshall Munetsi (Stade de Reims), Marvelous Nakamba (Aston Villa), Never Tigere (Azam), Perfect Chikwende (Simba SC), Thabani Kamusoko (Zesco United), Knowledge Musona (Al-Tai), Knox Mutizwa (Lamontville Golden Arrows), Terrence Dzvukamanja (Orlando Pirates).

The Professional Footballers Who Never Play Football by Broganonthewing
There have been many changes to the English game in the last 40 years. The majority of these changes, if not all of them have all been influenced or dictated by money, both the making and saving of it.
Catch-19 by LegendRay
How many others on the site remember April 15 1961, the day, as TWTD recalls, when Town last beat Lincoln away in the league?
Cook is No Gamechanger by BossMan
I was 12 when we won the FA Cup so saw early success in my early years as a Town fan. How spoilt I was to see Beattie, Wark, Muhren Thijssen et al.
Building a High Performance Team at ITFC by Jaime_Clapham
Change is hard. Building a team is hard. Just reflect on what it’s like within the organisations that you work in, or when you are kicking off a new project. A football club and team are no different.
Marathon Blues by wadey
As some of you may be aware, we lost our little boy Tyler on 1st April 2012, aged just 15 months old. There was no cause declared and he just passed away in his sleep. Since then, I’ve tried to raise as much money for charity in memory of him.
