Zimbabwe skipper Knowledge Musona said on Monday that his side should concentrate on all the members of the Egyptian team and not just try to stop Salah when the Warriors take on the hosts in the Nations Cup opener on Friday.

"We should not only focus on stopping Mohamed Salah but everyone on the field, because if we make the mistake of only fighting against Salah, we will be destroyed by someone we don’t know," Musona told Zimbabwean newspaper Herald on Monday

The Lokeren striker admitted that Zimbabwe's mission against Egypt will be tough, asking his the players to believe in themselves and to fight fiercely during this crucial game.

"We just have to make sure that we are strong in every position and we are ready to fight in every duel and take the chances that we might have," he added.

"We are not here to talk, we are here to play. We came here to fight and it’s going to be a tough game."

Zimbabwe will play in Group A alongside hosts Egypt, Uganda and DR Congo.
