Malawi national football team and Platinum Stars midfielder Robert Ng’ambi has been ruled out of Wednesday’s 2018 FIFA World Cup preliminary first leg qualifier against Tanzania due to an injury.

Ng’ambi injured.

Ng’ambi was included in the 20 man squad by Flames mentor Ernest Mtawali but the midfielder failed to join his team mates in Dar Es Salaam on Monday.

Surprisingly, he featured for his club in the 3-nil defeat to Kaizer Chiefs in the Telkom Knockout Cup on Sunday afternoon.

The midfielder was left frustrated when he was left to warm the bench by Mtawali during Malawi’s 2-2 draw to Swaziland in the 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifier.

After the match, Ng’ambi publicly showed his disappointment when he told local reporters that his snubbing was an indication that he was no longer in the plans of Mtawali.

Every proffessional player who was named in the final squad has joined camp apart from the former Big Bullets and MDC United midfielder.



  1. Only if we have a coach that thinks differently from most local soccer analyts Malawi will regain its long lost glory. I think its high time we overhaul our team starting from the coaches brain to the men on ground. Mtawali has shown us his will to turn around things by doing what other coaches wouldn’t do – kunyengerera old dogs that can’t learn new tricks.

  2. Osakazigoletsa nokha kumeneko, kaya mumamenya mpila wakuti kaya zautsilu zokhazokha zimene muchita ku Tanzaniako

  3. Mtawali ndi mbuzi ya coach plus nsanje kwa baggio waiwala kuti iye mene anali ku RSA ankakana bench. U shd watch how Ngambi is doing in psl……. South africans amachita kulakalaka Baggio ali wa dziko lawo
