Flames squad under microscope

88

Malawians from all corners of the country have expressed mixed reactions over the Flames mentor Ernest Mtawali’s team selection for the world cup qualifier encounter against Tanzania on 7th October 2015 in Tanzania.

In his 20 man squad, Mtawali named youthful players most of him he was coaching at the Under 20 team.

While some football fans expressed satisfaction with the coach’s selection claiming that the Flames mentor is building his own team as such his decisions have to be respected by all the football fanatics in Malawi.

One of the football fanatics who is happy with the Flames mentor squad for the Tanzania showdown is Precious Mkaika who said that the mentor has made a good selection for the Flames world cup qualifier game against the Taifa’s of Tanzania.

Flames take on Tanzania next week.

Patience Kantchowa also concurred with Mkaika saying the mentor has selected a promising squad but he questioned the decision to drop goalkeeper Richard Chipuwa in the squad.

Despite that some people are happy with the squad other are not happy with the team claiming that the coach has selected a team which is not capable of bringing results and also questioned the coach decision of changing players in every game.

Allan C Nyirenda claimed that Malawi will not have a strong team because the Flames mentor is not sticking to one squad.

” Sitizakhala ndi national team yamphamvu ku Malawi, game yiliyonse squad yake.kkk zodabwitsa zedi,” said Nyirenda a statement which meant that Malawi will not have a strong national team because the coach changes his squad in every game.

Matemba Suwali conquered with Nyirenda saying he could have loved if the National team coach could have been sticking to one squad if Malawi is to start producing good results.

The Malawi team which is travelling to Tanzania is as follows;

Goalkeepers– Simplex Nthara and Brighton Munthali.

Defenders – Limbikani Mzava, Stainley Sanudi, John Lanjesi, Miracle Gabeya, Pilirani Zonda and Yamikani Fodya.

Midfielders -Levison Maganizo, Chimango Kayira, Robert Ng’ambi, Isaac Kaliyati, John Banda, Micium Mhone, Gerald Phiri Jnr, and Dalitso Sailesi.

Strikers -Manase Chiyesa, Gabadinho Mhango, Chawanangwa Kaonga and Robin Ngalande.

  19. almost each and every person is a coach in malawi and everybody can come up wth his/her own,selection,but Mtawi’s time is now and your time(viewers) will come let us respect his decision let us support him

    • Vry correct guy everybody z a couch here in malawi coz we put our couches under pressure and we need them to follow our views so in this case i wish we should nt hav a couch 4 national team.

  20. Mtawali akonze kumbuyo for each and every game we do score beautiful goals,but the problem is with our deffenders,they are failing to stop the ball and give time to our goalkeeper

  21. honestly the squad is so tremendous, but our strikers should pull up their sox. i only place my trust on Gaba and Ngalande. but why dint he recruit Green Harawa to assist our striking force? anyway, big up ntawali and all the best flames. WE LOVE YOU!

  22. No nonono the coach is very right and he knows what he is doing if a player is not perfoming as per expected perfomance its better n good to replace him wth the other n its only through this if w realy need a good side, players need to compete for the position thts why before any game we need training inorde to screewtinise the players n make changes if necessary.
