CHERRIES full-back Jordan Zemura is eager to shine on the international stage as he prepares for crucial World Cup qualifiers with Zimbabwe.

Named in his country’s squad for a double-header against Ghana this month, the 21-year-old could be in line to add to his two senior caps already picked up for the Warriors.

Zimbabwe are currently bottom of Group G in the African qualifying process, where the winner of each four-team group will progress through to a play-off for a place at Qatar 2022.

And despite the challenge being set for the Cherries full-back, former Charlton and QPR youngster Zemura is looking forward to his return to the international arena.

"It looks very much a gigantic task but that motivates more," Zemura told The Herald, ahead of his nation’s trip to Ghana on Saturday.

"Playing back-to-back matches against such a big name or team like Ghana cannot be an easy task at all.

"It is tough, very tough. But, football has changed and we are looking forward to a very good outing in Ghana before we can talk of the home game three days later.

"Our full focus is on the match against Ghana away. They have very good players in their team but when you also look at ours, you will see quality and depth.

"We have to go out there, play positive football, throw everything and get a result.

"We are at a point where we have to win each game no-matter how hard it looks starting from this one on Saturday.

"We have to play for each other, put in that extra and we will get the result that we are looking for.”

Zemura has been in stellar form for Cherries this season, having not missed a minute in the Championship for the Dorset club this season.

The Lambeth-born left-back scored twice for the Dorset club in a 3-0 victory over Barnsley at Vitality Stadium last month.
