Zimbabwe National Football side are reportedly in the midst of a dispute with their own football association on the eve of their AFCON opener against Egypt.

There are now reports that players of the Zimbabwe national team have threatened not to face Egypt in the AFCON 2019 opener due to money issues.

According to the report on ESPN, the country’s Football Association signed an agreement with the players in May on when their entitlements will be paid.

But the agreement has not been fulfilled which forced Zimbabwe players not to train on Thursday, June 20, ahead of their tie against host nation.

This is not the first time money issues will be happening between Zimbabwe players and the country’s FA as it will be recalled how they refused to board a flight to Gabon in 2017.

“They haven’t paid and we are still waiting.

“They promised everything [would be paid] tomorrow [Friday] morning,” a member of Zimbabwe’s travelling party told ESPN when asked to confirm that some members of the squad had proposed a boycott.
