Pundits tear Mtawali apart

Soccer pundits have blamed Malawi national football team coach, Ernest Mtawali over his selection of the squad that lost 2 nil to Tanzania in the 2018 World Cup Qualifier on Wednesday.

Speaking in no-hold barred sports analysis program on state owned Malawi Broadcasting Cooperation (MBC) Radio 2, the radio’s sports journalists, Steve Liwewe Banda, Patrick Simango, Francis Chabvi and Patrick Lunda all echoed the fact that Mtawali failed on the arsenals he picked.

Speaking on his part, Liwewe, a familiar name as far as football commentary is concerned in the country, argued that Simplex Nthala performance in goals was below par in both the two goals the team conceded in the first half.

Mtawali (in white) his wits have been questioned.

Liwewe believes that dropped keeper, Richard Chipuwa was more better to attain the position other than Nthala.

This remark game because, Chipuwa was booted out of the Flames squad that traveled to Dar es Salaam for Nthala and Fisd Wizards shots stopper, Brighton Munthali.

“You see, one can not throw away dirty water when you don’t have clean one. It was very important for the coach to give reasons for Chipuwa’s dropping other than saying he has poor communication skills. Look at the performance by Nthala.” said Liwewe to host Frank Kandu.

On the part of whether, the Flames would overturn the tables and win at home against the Taifa boys on Sunday, commentator Simango argued that it remains doubtful and said this would be easier if the team at least savaged a goal to have a better goal aggregate when at home in the second leg.

Simango then recommended that Mtawali considers picking one of the top tier league leading goal scorers, Innocent Bokosi as a striker in the next squad.

Liwewe and all other panelists maintained that performance of one hero Gabadihno Mhango who was out of the squad for a long period due to an injury was still not worthy it.

Gaba as fondly known, came in a substitute replacing Robin Ngalande whose heroics together with Chawangwa Kaonga failed to see the Flames even score one goal.

The analysts said that the forward is still yet to gain his form after sustaining an injury and argued he needs to be given time to comeback to his form if he is to

They then asked Mtawali to consult more on his selection to have better results for the team.

The team hosts the Taifa stars at Kamuzu Stadium on Sunday.

The winner will play Algeria later on.

Otherwise,mudzanena kuti sitimakonda dziko lathu when you see us supporting VISITING TEAMS, Timaopa ma B.P Malawi ikaluza.

  26. coach your players needs to be quick on the ball, hold the ball with purpose, yur positions 3 and 2 needs tight marking in the wings..you can make it.

  27. The same mistakes made by Chimodzi when we come to the selection is still goin on, yes ofcoz its been a long time we won, but some of the time we used to play well but felliing to win, right now we are not even play better the whole team and hence we got what we deserve, am pointing my fingers at Coach

  35. Am a futbal fan but i bet u my fellows the problem is not Earnest but futbal Admin FAM SULOM Replace FAM President & other positions like Technical Diretor They say they r on talent identification prgramme but can they mention one player am not happy coz am a civil servant hence my Tax otherwise we wil take action (I repeat Earnest is not a promlem)Nowadays futbal is run by indviduals here in MW!!

  36. as much as it hurts there is real need to reform football . Here are the talking points if you approach football as social you get poor results . Foot is professional game which needs professional structures and approach . There was no friendlies , who went to see tanzania , we let supporters run clubs hire and fire coaches and excutives we have always prepared to fail . We dont have any elite players production plan check with all our neighboring countries . What is our player development plan on the youth ?

  37. Gaba, Ngalande , Junior and Mhone mpira ma club mwao sakusewera and zomatengera kuti adasewerapo bwino nthawi ina yake kulakwa and goalkeeper naye paja adapasidwa suspension plus Gabeya amakhala patambwa meaning 6 out 11 ndi mbola and team ingachite bwino?

  38. Eishhh l think FAM is one to blame here,how can they hire a cat to babysit a snake??????Mtawali has never coached on highest level nor under 10 here in SA which clearly shows that all fam management is taking us nowhere not losing to Taifa#ZATINYASA

  39. abale kulowetsa muthu oti or game imodzi sanamenyepo ku club,kusia athu amene ali game time kuma club like harry nyilenda ,atusaye nyondo iiii.tazitengani anyamata ali game time tikamaluza tizimvomereza tonse

  40. Mtawali is jst fyn,he is buildng de better squad ,lets nt b 4cusd on errors, lets supot our youth squad dey wl gain expernce,amene mukumaonera mpira coach alibe vuto tingosowekera mwayi wazigoli kma ma player akusewera mpira,lets nt b power hungry footbal is nt politics,ena mafuna udindo,lets gv Mtawali & squad sapot.

  41. Nayenso wayamba kuitenga ngati team ya kubanja kwake kumangolowetsa maplayer oti ngakhale ku Club saloowa amakhala pa bench kutengera kudziwana

    • Losing is part of the game but its painful to lose because someone didnt make the right decision.brazil,south africa,nigeria tried to bring under 20 it didnt work.we need to inject the squad with experienced players together with the up coming ones.If we fail to beat swaziland,tanzania,and zimbabwe then we will beat who?

    • Kod ma experiennced players munalibe? Cj banda, limbikan mzava, chimango, ngalande, nthala even fodya himself ok ryt nanga ma exp mukuwanenawo ndi ati? Coz timangoluza even with those so called exp ones musiyen mtawali agwire ntchito akudyera momwemo

  42. Amene angakwanise kunditumizila Uthengawu kwa Ntawali andthandizeko…. Iyiyi Nd #SENIOR_NATIONAL_TEAM osat under 20 nde ngat matengedwe ake akhale amenewa Bola #FLAMES ingotha Guys… NT jst sayin ths is Serious…
