The Zimbabwe Alledged under 17 team

Zimbabwe has embarrassingly been kicked out of the 2020 COSAFA U17 tournament taking part in Port Elizabeth South Africa over age cheating.

The annual development tournament for the Council of Southern Africa Football Associations (COSAFA) only in its second day has been thrown into disarray.

Reports reaching ZimEye.com indicate that the entire teams of Zimbabwe, Botswana, Comoros, Eswatini have all been disqualified from the event after failing Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scans, a device that reflects the age of humans based on the organs and tissues in the body.

Meanwhile, the tournament’s remaining teams include hosts SA, Zambia, Malawi and Angola.
