Flames to assemble on Saturday for Afcon qualifiers


The Flames of Malawi are expected to start camping on Saturday ahead of their crucial group L African Cup of Nations encounter away to Guinea on 23 March before hosting them at home four days later.

Football Association of Malawi (FAM) general secretary Suzgo Nyirenda confirmed the development but was quick to say the camping will comprise of the local based players only.


Flames: To start preps.

“Local players will start camping from 21 February up to 20 March and after that, Enerst Mtawali will name his final squad for the game. We have advised Mtawali to include more professional players because they are the ones active now considering the fact that local players are not playing at the moment,” he said.

Malawi is third with a point, 3 points behind leaders Swaziland. Beating Guinea will revive Flames chances of making it to Gabon but any mistake will surely end their dreams of appearing at the tournament for the third time in history.

Mtawali’s boys started the Afcon campaign on a very bad note after losing 2-1 to Zimbabwe at home before recording a 2-all draw away to Swaziland.
