Cape Town - Zimbabwe captain Willard Katsande says he is disappointed at having bowed out of the Africa Cup Of Nations, in addition to calling time on international career.

The Kaizer Chiefs hard-man cut a frustrated figure following his side's exit from the group stages, after 2-0 and 4-2 defeats against Senegal and Tunisia respectively

"The feeling is obviously not good because we didn't reach our goal," he told his club's official website. "We are disappointed, but life goes on.

"Taking part in AFCON means a lot to any footballer. We enjoyed every single minute of our three matches.

"I am happy with my individual performance. I hope to have left a mark at this tournament. I managed to be consistent, which was my priority."

Katsande ended his seven-year spell with the Warriors - having made a total of 19 appearances for the national team and netting three times.

The Zimbabwean will now be looking to help Kaizer Chiefs hit the ground running when the league resumes on February 7 with the Soweto giants a point off the top of the PSL standings.

Chiefs who have come in for criticism this season for a lack of goals will be looking to improve in the final third when they welcome Free State Stars to the FNB Stadium.

Kick off is at 19:30.
