Knowledge Musona: Zimbabwe Captain Retires from International Football

Striker Knowledge Musona says he is thankful for the chance to play for Zimbabwe after retiring from international football.

The 31-year-old, who was capped 51times, scored twenty eight goals in his twelve-year career.

The Al Tai striker played his final game as Zimbabwe crashed out of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations with a 2-1 win over Guinea in Cameroon.

Musona made his debut for Zimbabwe in 2010 after impressing national team selectors whilst on the books of Kaizer Chiefs.

Despite his experience, the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations tournament was Musona’s third and last as a professional footballer.

“Dear Zimbabwean Family, It is with a heavy heart that I officially announce my retirement from national duty with our beloved national football team, the Warriors,” Musona said in statement.

“It is a decision that I do not take lightly after representing our beloved country for 12 years, starting with my first appearance on 3rd of March 2010, in a game versus South Africa.

“My time with the Warriors has been an incredible and rewarding journey that I am thankful to have had the opportunity to undertake, one that I only dreamt of achieving early on in my professional career. I will cherish every moment that I have spent as a member of the team.

I am retiring to concentrate on my career at the club level and to afford my other teammates and rising stars the opportunity to represent our beloved country.”
