Cardiff City midfielder Andrew Rinomhota has assured Zimbabwe about his readiness to represent the country if picked next time for international assignments.
The 25-year-old English born Zimbabwean, who was born to an English mother and a Zimbabwean father has always been a target for Zimbabwe warriors and was included in Warriors’ AFCON 2021 squad for Cameroon but couldn’t make it due to injury.
Speaking at a press conference ahead of Cardiff City’s clash against Tendayi Darikwa’s Wigan Athletic, Rinomhota said he is now ready to go through the process of assigning himself to the Warriors
“The time they called me up I was injured. Since then it would be an issue of applying for a Zimbabwean passport. I haven’t gone around that process yet, but it’s something I will look into.
“AFCON is a great platform to showcase your abilities. It’s another experience and another side to my game I could add, getting international experience.
“I haven’t looked at it too in depth, but I think I’d have to get a Zimbabwean passport,” said Rinomhota.
Rinomhota is enjoying his career so far at Cardiff City having settled well after joining in the summer.
The lanky midfielder has featured in all Bluebirds’ twelve league matches played so far helping them to a top ten position on the log with fifteen points from twelve games and are in contention for a playoff place.
His availability for the Warriors will add depth in the midfield department where Zimbabwe currently have French based and Stade Reims’ linchpin Nyasha Munetsi, Kundai Benyu (IBV in Iceland) and Aston Villa’s Marvelous Nakamba just to name a few.
