The Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) and the Warriors have seemingly put to rest the drama that rocked the AFCON bound team as the two parties have agreed on a remuneration formula.

Players on Friday refused to attend a send off ceremony organised by government with the first batch of players scheduled to have left for Cameroon missing an early morning flight.

Despite the impasse, a deal has been struck between the local football governing body and the Warriors according to ZIFA president Phillip Chiyangwa.

According to a press statement sent out by ZIFA, players demands are US$150 in local daily allowances and US$500 in foreign daily allowances.

The players have also asked for US$5 000 in appearance fees at AFCON and US$6 000 for winning bonuses in the group phase.

Should the team progresses to the quarters, players have requested for a qualification bonus of US$475 000.

With the two parties finally reaching an agreement the first batch of players will this Sunday leave for Cameroon where they face the Indomitable Lions in an international friendly on Tuesday, January 10.
