Malawi slaughtered by Zimbabwe

691

The Flames of Malawi have been slaughtered 3-nil by the Warriors of Zimbabwe in the 2017 Group L African Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifier played at National Sports Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Flames

Flames have lost again

Flames mentor Ernest Mtawali used a 4-3-3 formation, with Rafick Namwera and Wonder Jeremani being handed their full national team debuts.

From the word go, Zimbabwe dictated the pace of the game while applying pressure on the Flames’ defence in the opening stages of the encounter.

Minutes later, the visitors settled down through Joseph Kamwendo, the only creative player on the day for Malawi, but was let down by Chiukepo Msowoya and John Banda who were having a bad game on the day.

Fourteen minutes later, Zimbabwe got their opener through a penalty scored by Knowledge Musona.

A silly back pass by Namwera was intercepted by Tendai Ndoro who released Musona upfront before being fouled by Charles Swini in the penalty box, leaving referee Justie Ephraim Vio from Burkina Faso with no choice but to penalize Malawi from which Musona easily converted.

At the other end, Kamwendo won a free kick just outside the penalty box but Peter Wadabwa failed to connect before Banda fired wide minutes later.

With some few minutes to play before the interval, Malawi conceded again.

The Warriors’ pressure paid off on 33rd minute when Khama Billiat received the ball inside the Flames’ box and he scored to make it 2-nil.

The visitors’ coach Ernest Mtawali brought in Gabadinho Mhango for ineffective Banda just few minutes before the interval.

Come into the second half, Malawi’s depleted defence improved, with John Lanjesi and Harry Nyirenda making some stunning clearances to deny the Warriors from doing further damage.

Micium Mhone was then introduced for Jeremani but this did not help at all as Willard Katsande in the midfield outsmarted the visitors.

Musona and Billiat were causing havoc as Malawi failed to tame the duo’s pace.

Billiat almost doubled his tally on 69th minute when he dribbled past Lanjesi only to fire wide from close range.

Minutes later, Billiat was at it again. Nyirenda failed to clear the ball, allowing the Zimbabwean to overtake him before being denied by Swini.

Mhone was substituted for Muhamad Sulumba, who had his head cleared by the hosts’ shot-stopper.

Msowoya received a million dollar pass from Mhango but the latter’ shot was blocked by Warriors’ defender.

Cuthbert Malajila, who came in for Ndoro, sealed the victory for the Warriors with a powerful header from Musona’s cross to put the match beyond Malawi’s reach and after the final whistle, it ended 3-nil.

The victory sees Zimbabwe qualifying for the continental showpiece next year for the first time in years following Guinea’s 1-nil defeat away to Swaziland.

Malawi are still winless in all their five matches in the qualification phase.

  1. well done coach, well done Walter. we love you very much. you deserve a big hand. don’t worry. you shall be in office forever. you are the life president. thou shan’t vacate the office till kingdom come. we love you bcoz you do what pleases us. see, you have made flames win by 6- 9 goals. those that are saying u should quit are saying out of love. Amen!

  2. The Government should apologise to the Malawi nation for the poor performance displayed by the flames in Zimbabwe.They are responsile for all this mess.Where is the Moyors Trophy.the NBS trophy, the division 1 , 2, 3 and 4 where players were groomed.look today when a player scores a couple of goal for Mponera Jazz Rangers, tomorrow is featured in the National tean.Is this the way how groom a player?and players of today , i mean the current flames players , they cant run, they are the 15 minutes players coz they are rushed into big action before they are ready.And the Government is charging a lot of tax which is making most of the companies to give a blind eye for our sports especially football.During Ngwazi, we had many teams like Nico moneymen Gafrees. BAT. Consolidated textiles Mitco MDC but all vanished.

  3. Malawi24 reporters, school to use English vocabulaly according with the field you are targetting. There ‘s no way you can use slaughterred as if warriors is a butcher.After all am a flames fan either black or white.

  5. A Malawi ndibwino team yathuyi iyambe yaima kaye kutenga mbali mu mipikisano yosinasiyana kwa zaka zingapo kuti tikonze timuyi titha kumasewera mipira yopimana mphamvu basi, mpaka titadzaona kuti pano titha ku pikisana nawo ndikuchita bwino mu mipikisano ngati yimeneyi, kusiyana ndikumango chititsidwa manyazi nthawi zonse. Ine ndikuona ngati nyumba mukamaliza kumanga ndipamene mumayamba kuigwiritsa ntchito osati isanathe ai. Ndiye “if our coaches are building our team lets give them time” akamaliza adzatiuza ndipo ngati amalawi tidzayenera kusimikizika mtima kuti titha kuchitadi bwino. Apo bii why not promoting on other sporting discpline.

  6. Kaya amene umapanga za flames ine zaka 4 zakwana no any comment on that mchabwa wa team ngati imeneyo. Achina khama biliat kuno nizikhanila zoopsa tikuwawonela live.

  7. Ndimaona ngati mugabe akunama zulo ku chalichi! Anati ngati malawi inga chinye zimbabwe atenga nkazi wake ndikumpatsa muthalika. Anaziwa usilu wa timu yanthu.

  8. mvuto si coach koma akulu akulu oona za mpirã, kodi a coach onse angakhale olakwika mtîmu kumangokhalira kulooser? Akukuakulu onse a fam atule undindo wawo.

  11. On top of “slaughter” We can also use some terms like @”fire baptist”,”whitewash”,”m’dululidwe waabambo”,”kupunthidwa”etc

  12. Guys osamanyoza team yafuko lanu zimandiwawa kwambili, ngati mukunyoza inuyo ndiye adzaisapota ndani? KApena akuzambia? Mundisamale kwambili am seriuos ndiyathu team basi

  13. Plz try to call a foreign coach to train our team. We hv try d local ones bt all we get r poor results. Mwina iye azatenga ma player according to flexibility,team work,hardworkin,perfomance,behavior,tinkin capability of them nt d clubs they r playing for. Some players cn play well in clubs bt nt in a national team its different. Plz nyamilandu osationjeza chosani coach + technical panel yonse. Lets try new things. Nafe we want to cheer up our team nt mene tinabadwila mangosapota maiko ena when dea z world cup. National team yanji yomangoona different players every game even ku club sizichitika izi,mpira wa mtawaliwu ndiwachilendo mu yerusalemu muno.

  14. Reporters please check on the language you are using. You as all Malawians should be patriotic. How many teams have lost matches? You are insinuating that its only flames which is a fallacy. Have you made investigations as to why the team performs like that?

  17. Koma kunena zoona if Walter and company love Malawi football they should honourably step down or else we will hold vigil. Malawi football cannot improve with Walter at the helm. Tizilira mpaka kalekale.

  18. coach wanj osadziwa kukhala best first 11 yama player,team ili yonse wamenya nayo ma player osiyanasiyana amatero ukochiwo?chamba chokhachokha m’mutu wooooo!

  23. IT IS ALL ABOUT THE QUALITY OF THE SQUAD. SOME OF THE PLAYERS WERE NOT AT ALL QUALIFIED FOR AN INTERNATIONAL GAME. LET’S LOOK AT THE TNM SUPER LEAGUE. PLAYERS ARE BY FAR NOT QUALIFIED FOR THE OUR PRIMIER LEAGUE. PLEASE OUR SUPER LEAGUE COACHES, DO NOT JUST STAY IN TOWN. COME TO THE VILLAGES AND HUNT FOR REAL TALENTED PLAYERS. LET ME CALL A SPADE A SPADE. IF A COACH WERE TO MAKE A SELECT TEAM FROM A SINGLE DISTRICT, HE CAN MANAGE TO BEAT OUR CURRENT NATIONAL TEAM BY MANY GOALS. IF SOMEONE IS REFUTING, LET THE GOVERNMENT RELEASE MONEY FOR SCOUTING PLAYERS IN THE REMOTE FOR A SINGLE DISTRICT AND ENTRUST IT TO A REKNOWNED COACH. HE CAN SURELY PULL A SURPRISE.

  24. We have done it! I knew it. Am a Zimbabwean here in Harare, until and unless you halt killing the innocent Albinos, you shall never be successful.
    Is it understood?

  25. Team yolowesa ma striker four amwene , team yopanda ma wingers, yopanda creative attacking midfield players, yopanda defending midfielder ayayaya malawi ili kutali , please ma academy yambisani , ma pitch mangani , akulu akulu nu tulani pasi udindo please ena ayeseko , Mwina malawi ingazapiteko ku world cup malawi dzuka the game has changed , ma player a national team kukanika kupanga control mpira olo kupeleka through ball , mavuto alipo ndithu

    • Any formation u play is beyond our reach.All what i kno is that you players dont understand any formation.Believe me they just run any how in the field of play.And the other problem is our fake ur corrupt these coaches minds bcz of ur unneccesary glorification of the players.Tell them that they donot have football brain.And not just nick naming them bcz of one game performance.And u nid to stop this nosense for once.Lets face reality.Our coaches donot b influenced by fame of our player bcz fame comes for so many reason some just becz of how there names sound,body structure,how the run,i cn go on & on.All in all the botton line is alot of good players are not given chance bcz they r not famous.And it take good coaches to id those players.One last thing Our national team coaches visit these teams during train believe u will see good un used player bcz of football politics.These r players who r neva used for better known to the technical away from football matters.I lest my case.

  26. Dad coaching staff dead funding from a dead government with dead president where can it survive tell me, if the govt fails to pay civil servants in time what more with football squad? Malawi is only the name left

  27. As expected Malawi has been humbled and humiliated by low-rated Zim Warriors.
    3-0, shame! We commented enough last time. Malawi has no football team at all. We cannot put the blame on our coaches.
    However, I still contend that there is always a way out. Our team lacks both co-ordination and concentration on the pitch. Or maybe our football management has run out of ideas. Walter Nyamilandu and the whole FAM management must resign. We need need a management with new ideas.

  28. mpira omwe amasewera a flames ndi a china wadabwa..chiukepo..cj..sizimagwirizana olo pang’ono..umafuna ma player ofewa ngat kamwendo..kuwali ndi azinzake…ma player ena ndi control yomwe kulepherereratu..haaa…

  29. Makape mpira unali kale mpaka 3 – 0 Enest must step down he dont knw anything abt soccer . He fucking the nation team n westing the money for nothing . Im coming to inform the new national team .

    • I dont think adzapezeka coach woyitha flames n coach is the problem, look at the football management first, or form a new flames team, you ll see the same thing

  30. mumaganiza kuti amalawi angatani? vuti simakochi chomwe ndaona ine malawi sitipeleka ndalma zokwana kumasewera a mpira 1 team yafuko singapange friendly nd azam tigers or mafco mpira nkumatha 1 0 kapena 0 0 thats not fair zimbabwe idamenya zokonxekela ndi uganda kod kwao kulibe ma team ali mu ligi yakonko????????? we were expcting malaw kumenya friendly ndi zambia or botswana or any team aclose the borders nkumalimban ndi ma team a tnm super league esh tisadane ndi m coach apa tiyen tiunike ku fam am telling u flmes itha kupita ku leligeshon italowa mu tnm blv me

  31. Timu yamalawi ili ndi vuto lalikulu,c ifukwa mapulea a thu ose ali ndi mwendo udziudzi matimu amene am aswela nao ndi amiendo inai..inai ndy tizingokufa bassss.Mmmm!Ooo.

  32. Malawi shots at goal 1,……shot on target 0, offsides 8, faul 7, red card 0,…..ball position 21….is thekutanthauxa kut even without goalkeeper mpira ukatherabe 3-0 chifkw no shot on target 90 +mins

  33. Dzina lomwe ndinalikana Ku Swaziland masiku apitawo ndi the flames of Malawi. Ndinati , in Malawi we don’t have senior national football team, but we have the Queens senior national netball team.

  34. What is FLAMES NATIONAL TEAM?
    FLAMES is a cup of pain,
    a bucket of lies
    a bottle of heart attacks,
    a basin of headache,
    a kettle of stress,
    a pot of tension,
    a tray of depression,
    jug of confusion,
    a litter of difficulties,
    a tin of troubles,
    a glass of disapointments,
    a flask of uncomfotability,
    a task of sleepless nights
    True or False?

  35. Flames two much kuiwala idaiwala zimene inapitila and mmwalo moona pa goal maso anali kuma stand kwa chinzimayi chimadikula chija short on target 0 and short to the stand 16 times per player …and zimbabwe inachita kudziwilatu kuti pamenepa ndiye iupha mpanje mosavuta…..

  36. The coach shld be fired first. His tricks seem to be out of touch with the realities of football. The team be disbanded and the new team be employed full time as prayers on government pay roll and all benefits arranged.at least Kinnaird provided some solace to Malawi not these others

  37. Its time to give what a prayer needs in life to perform.Govt give them all necessary things.Who so ever dosn’t perform, should be dismissed.

  38. Amalaw Tidazowela Kumangotukwana Pamaleague Amuno Mmalaw Pamene Tikapit Kuma Internation Game Ndie Undionongela Taonani Zomwe Watipanga Khama Biliati Mpaka 3-0

  51. what bad news? what were u expecting. the only way to qualify is to beat opponets not mathematicts. if u dont have quality dont expect others to play for you.

  52. kma nde wanamadi ameneyu… only agoalie to beat? wamumenya mpira uja ndi goalie? musamawabwatike anthu apaa…. Chiukepo anagwira ntchito yake kma mbambande defender wa Zimbabwe anazisadabuza then deflection.

  53. Zabwino palibe apa ofunika ndalama zakuthumba la Malawi natlonal team zngopita ku nthumba la ana amasiye tatopa ndzopusazi sopano muzawina liti

  54. Kamwendo has faired well. But killing the wingers has let us down. Mecium came from the bench but u sub him. Kamwendo has no pass to any of his strikers.

  55. Mtawari akanakhala anatenga robert ng’ambi ndi chimango kaira bwenzi pano tikumva kutsekemera pamodzi ndi Kamwendoyo! Koma taonani maplayer enawo ngati Dzidude choncho?

  56. point of collection,its Zim 2 BB 0 according to NBB supporters so dont counting us 4 dat mess. amayakhula mopusa Awa!! kutengedwa Anyamata 8 ku team its not reason kuti aziti ndi Flames. ndikomwekomwe how many players from 8 Squard yawoyo ayamba game?. Stop mchitidwe wa Umbuliwu.

  57. Kamwendo is good but l still think better we develop mafana in the likes of Thuso Paipi. The likes of Khama Billiati were in early primary classes when Kamwendo played with the likes of Benjamin Mwaluwari, Murambadoro etc

  58. Guyz jelous down flames ikuziwa kupasilana komano vuto ndi ma strikers athu sakupezeka kungooneka mmozi yekha, kaya bwanji tili ndi ma chance abwino oti tikanatha kupeza zigoli even 3 -o tikanatha kuichinya zim komano zikapitilira nde sindikuziwa kuti zitha bwaa?

  59. Right defender cant contain malajila and musona. And no winger so far. Kamwendo is ok but we have no natural passers behind the strikers. Fm7 has contained Billiat thas why they re using the sanudi side. Cant blame any of our strikers.

  60. Malawi ingosiya kumapanga participate mum international tournaments otherwise tizingochita manyazi. Ndalama zomwe agwilitsa ntchito bona likanatha kugula chimamga

    • I am proud of my national team(Zimbabwe),warriors…Knowledge Musona and Khama Billiat you raised our flag…Go wariors Gooooo.Thank you coach Calisto Pasuwa.
