Knowledge Musona has announced his retirement from international football
Knowledge Musona, the captain of the Zimbabwe Warriors, has declared his retirement from international football.
Since his debut, Musona, also known as the ‘Smiling Assassin,’ has been a prolific goal scorer for the national team.
On March 3, 2010, he made his debut against South Africa. He commanded Zimbabwe for five years after his debut appearance.
Musona, who currently works for Al-Tai in Saudi Arabia, made the announcement via his Twitter account.
Musona’s formal statement is being published in its entirety by ZiMetro News:
Dear Zimbabwean Family,
I officially announce my departure from national duty with our beloved national football team, the Warriors, with a sorrowful heart.
It is a difficult decision for me to make after 12 years of serving our dear country, beginning with my first appearance on March 3, 2010, in a game against South Africa.
My time with the Warriors has been a wonderful and fulfilling experience that I am grateful to have experienced, and one that I only dreamed of reaching early in my professional career.
Every moment I spent as a member of the team will be remembered fondly.
I’m retiring to focus on my club career and to provide opportunities for my other colleagues and rising players to represent our beautiful country.
In both the bad points and the many wonderful aspects of my football career with the Warriors, I have been tremendously blessed.
I will forever look back with great pride on every occasion I represented Zimbabwe having played over 45 games for the team through international friendly matches, Cosafa Cup games, AFCON qualifiers and tournaments, and World Cup Qualifiers.
Mostly, I take immense pride to have captained the team for nearly 5 years.
None of this would have been entirely possible without the support of several instrumental people, whom I wish to thank.
Firstly, and foremost, I would like to thank the Lord Almighty for the love and blessings He showers me with each day of my life.
Secondly, thank you to my wonderful family. I do not have enough words to thank you for your unwavering support and prayers.
You are a priceless gift, greater than anything I can imagine.
For the unending support received from ZIFA and the national team coaches (past and present) who believed in me and offered me the platform to reach my full potential throughout my career and as captain, I will always be grateful.
Looking back over the years that I have proudly represented the Zimbabwe Warriors; I feel fortunate to have played alongside some outstanding players.
A special thank you to all the former captains for helping me develop into the player I am today. To my current teammates, thank you for accepting me as your leader.
Last but not least a massive and heartfelt thank you to all the supporters and fans that have carried me, supported, motivated me through this journey, and been by my side in all the challenges.
My hope, as is for many, is that those charged with the management of our beautiful game and its continuous development across all spheres work together for the greater good of our national team, our international and regional participation, and investment in up-and-coming talent that is abundant in our country.
I look forward to others being afforded the opportunities that I have had to don the colours of the Warriors and successfully represent us on the world stage.
I wish the Warriors all the best in the future as they continue carrying the flame for our country.
I remain available for and close to the Warriors to assist in any capacity where I can.
Thank you ALL 🙏🏾 pic.twitter.com/N6O0vRnpsw
