GABON: Netherlands-based midfielder Marvellous Nakamba, popularly known as the Dutch master, has bounced back from suspension ahead of their next game on Thursday.

The sanction saw him missing the Warriors opening 2017 African Cup of Nations clash against the Desert Foxes of Algeria on Sunday.

Nakamba, who plays for the Netherlands topflight league side Vittesse, had the misfortune of going to his maiden African Cup of Nations finals serving a one match suspension for picking yellow cards during the qualifiers of the tournament.

His unavailability meant that Warriors coach Kalisto Pasuwa had to field Danny Phiri in the defensive midfield department together with skipper Willard Katsande.

And the Warriors did not disappoint as they displayed an assured performance to defy odds and hold fancied Algeria to a 2-2 draw, the best start ever by the Warriors in the history of their Afcon campaigns.

Now, as Pasuwa's men prepare to take on Senegal in their second match in Group B on Thursday, they welcome Nakamba who is impressive with his passing range.

With chief striker Knowledge Musona ruled of the clash because of a harm string injury, Nakamba is expected to be the creative hub to feed the forward line.

Meanwhile, the Warriors new kit supplied by Mafro Sports finally delivered Tuesday, paving the way for the team to don their new gear for the match against Senegal.

The Warriors had to use an alternative as the kit against Algeria, as Mafro Sports had not yet arrived by the time the campaign got underway.

Mafro Sports faced logistical challenges in delivering the kit to Franceville on time.

Consequently, they were forced to use an alternative kit which had been approved by the Confederation of African Football.
