Logarusic was appointed in February 2020 but a run of bad form came to a head with a 0-0 draw against South Africa and a 1-0 loss to Ethiopia this month.

The Zimbabwe Football Association said a new coach will be named before the two World Cup qualifiers against Ghana next month.

Mwaruwari was made an assistant coach with the national team two weeks ago and is now tipped to get the head coach job.
