Mtawali breaks the records

147

The last time Malawi lost to Lesotho was in 1979 in a friendly match played in Blantyre but that record ended on Thursday night.

Before yesterday’s meeting, Malawi had registered ten victories in all competitions against Lesotho, booting them twice in the Cosafa Cup in 2005 and 2008 respectively.

On Thursday, Ernest Mtawali became the first Flames coach in 37 years to lose to Lesotho.

Ernest Mtawali

Mtawali: Breaks the record.

Malawi were able to keep possession but unlocking Lesotho’s defence in a match where a victory was a must for Mtawali’s boys.

Their opponents were composed, disciplined at the back and attacked with caution no wonder they got their goal with some few minutes left on the clock.

However, it was a day to forget for Mtawali who gave away a record that has been kept by previous coaches.

The former Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder’s tenure as Flames head coach is a mixed one, registering five victories in more than ten games. He has also failed to defend Cosafa Plate that was won by his predecessor Young Chimodzi last year.

It is still not known as to whether Football Association of Malawi (FAM) will offer him a new deal or not once his contract expires next month.

Malawi finished the tournament as runners up with 6 points from two victories they registered against Angola and Mauritius.

  1. THE COACH IS NOT TO BLAME. THE PLAYERS ARE TO BLAME. THE COACH DID NOT SELECT THE PLAYERS. THOSE THAT SELECTED THE PLAYERS ARE TO BLAME. WHY DID THEY CHOOSE BLANTYRE SELECT? THEY EVEN LEFT BEHIND THE SUPER LEAGUE TOP GOAL SCORER.

  4. You are after good result yet our team is not good you can change coaches but you should also look into the welfare of our players .These days money speaks .Give them good bonuses things will improve otherwise even if you bring the best coach is just a west of time.

  5. Apart from playing for the flames where did he become the football coach? I hope Meke Mwase would do better than this one. Kinnah is the best among local coaches pa malawi pano koma tikapitiriza zomati uyu ndi mtumbuka or mtonga tikhalira zomwezi.

  6. Yes, ine ndili kuno Ku EAST AFRICA , Iam looking very carefully when my beloved team is playing, AUDZENI KUTI NJOMBA ZIKHUMBIKA CHA, MASO NGAWO NGALELESI PAGORU CHONDI, CHONDI, KUSEWERA BWINO NDI NJOMBA CHA, KUSEWERA BWINO NDI VIGORI VINANDI PE.

Kweni Bora wachayiya Saza, But anyway lets us see next what gona happening. Just leave it as it is. But l have abig hope that my Country Malawi gonna win the Cosafa Cup l have got 75% to win

  8. Eix!!!!! But why malawians are still keeping this guy instead of getting somebody who is better?????? Can’t you bring kina back????????

  9. flames as the team mwatidyera ndalama zathu zamisonkho mbolaaa, ndipo game yamu september musati mfweee zandalama, ma allowance muli nawowo muyambe kuweta nkhuku muzizipezera nonkha ndalama muone kuwawa kwake

  10. I do put a blame on malawian supporters not a coach how do you expect your team to win if you dont wish it well?malawians you are not warm to the people of your own kind thats why you see us always being on loosing side,you are good at supporting teams of outside of our country like man u,liv pool and many more.let us be lovers of our own team and achange will come

  11. Koma amware mfundo mwanena apayi ndiyabadza kwambili monga mukufuna kunena kut ku timu ya zuni kungapezeke preya wa nation time?

  12. The biggest mistake we can make now is to fire the coach and disband the team and return to our perennial drawing board.

  13. Kma mvula ikagwa anthu kuchuluka zokamba, mpira ndi odzungulira kupambana mwna kugonja sichiyambi kma tingopanga zoti nthaw ina tidzipewe.

  14. Muyambe kaye mwatsata njira izi, 1.mkhale ndi under 17 ndi under 20 national side. 2. Mkhale ndi ma football acadamy 3.under 17 ndi 20 azipanga participate mu tournaments onse osat tilibe ndalama sitikapanga nawo tilebe ndalama.

  15. Always pointing fingers at coaches WHY? Our national team players are not dedicated. Even if they can be given millions, still they will loose. Lets not forget the teachers roles, to teach, guide and aspire BUT when coming to pass and selected, it is hard working with more effort, being dedicated and wanting to achieve. These players are not proud of their nation and themselves. My plea to our players, we love yu and our country, do yur best while in the field.

  16. Mumaziwa kuti timu yanthu ilibe ochinya koma mukumusiya ng,ambi why?. Chifukwa ng,ambi ndi striker ngakhale alipa midi amatha kuchinya. Dont do that mistak agan

  17. this guy is just a poor coach. imagine using same quadratic equation for differentiation by parts! a winning formula isn’t the same anywhere in problem solving

  18. When you have a society of trained engineers, accountants,environmentist,lawyers,doctors etc,who used task payers money to get educuated and when the graduate everything they found in place is deteriorating,how do you then have the moral mandate to criticise Joseph Kamwendo ,simply bcoz you can watch him from the comfort of your sitting room,a man who never was trained in a formal football xool and never used tax payers money to become a footballer but has always competed with the elite from south africa and europe on our behalf.If everyone was to watch you in your office on what you do on adaily basis would you have been better than flames.We are in this together,our nation is sinking in all sectors of life,if we continue with tribalism other than merit ,this is what we will get everywhere, failure.Tell me one sector that is ticking in Malawi so that i have the courage to fault our sportsmen.

  19. No wonder he mantains his failure record. Hey guys lets agree to disagree but fact is that the result always tells the truth. The flames wont be what we are imagining day and night. If you can go to website of cosafa and read step by step follow up, u will agree with me that lots of chances missed. And those we call international players? Unbelievable! They dont deserve that name. All ou ears are ready to hear the action from FAM on coachs way followard as Malawians have already expresse negativity on him

  20. Kkkkkkkkkk FIFA kulephera kutiika pa # yochitisa manyazi, koma zinthu osasinthabe mmmmm ndekayano tsopano!! Mwina muzayamba kuchilimika tikazafika pa # 209 kapena8??

  21. failure in football the flames!! no improvement all this years,i think gorvenment should permently stop funding them.or angoyithesa team tiwone zina ife.

  22. #KKKKKKKKKKKk.FLAMES.COM.Coach kudzimva How can u drop better and exepirience players like #NG’AMBI and #NGALANDE lerolo ndizimenezo kumango perekeza ma team ena

  23. Mukunyanya a Malawi kunama pa zaka za mapuleya kwakwiri. Muzinena chirungamo kuti Peter Wadabwa ali ndi 32 osati 23. Bodza kwambiri. Maupo ali ndi 36 osati 26. Mukadzakhonza pamenepa, Malawi yathuyi idzayambanso kumenyabwino.

  24. The pressident of Malawi Peter muthalika welcome Malawi frames national team and he say first was write to beat Angola and mariuse, bt last game was naver doing well so is not end of life, still time to prepare our national ‘ and Peter muthalika bought mbuzi to give every prayer, like thx for big jobbo , 1 goloboyi mbuzi, difenda mbuzi just all prayer mbuzi last big mbuzi is going to mtawali thax

  25. Inu mamsti Mtaesli angatani tangomchotdani mumupstse Ramadhan muona mmene ingachitire Malawi ingasithe koopdya osati Mtawali ayi Mtawali mskani dafuna kuti assistant coach ikepo maganizo ayi mumumenye akabwera Nyamilandunsi achitsedwe kodi minster of sports alikuti sakuona koma

  26. The Problem Iz Mntawale Akutenga National Team Ngati Ndiyakumwera Kokha.Sanganene Cifukwa Comwe Cidamupangitsa Kt Atenge Ma Player Ambiri Ku BB Ndi Ku Noma.Moti Tidzit Ma team Enawa Alibe Maplayer Osewera Bwino? Izitu Satengera Mbiri Kma Perfomancy Yamunthu.Ndie Ine Ndikuona Kt Ndidala .

  27. The record is there to be broken and there is no way we can stop it. As long as he is there he is again going to break a lot of records bad and good but what is more important is to join him hand in good and bad we are Flames. Koma zija zomatinamiza zoti we played outstanding football ndizija zoti we are building a team zichepe. We are not kids kumatinamiza manso muligwa. My late grandfather told me the Flames started being built when he was at 15 mpaka pano i am 27 sindinaone flames ikupita Ku African cup Of Nations motentha komanso molondoloza. Nde aziti akumanga team till when? Zichepe zankukuniza! I love flames and we love flames.

  28. It’s only at times of this nature that people who looks wise prove dolt. Is it not the same Ntawali you praised 48hrs ago? What ……(f word) are you saying today. Achievement in soccer is as good as pregnancy. You congratulate a woman without knowing how many times she has been ridden. It’s not how many times you fall but how many times you stand and fight back.

  29. Its not mtawali who breaks the record bt our players becoz mtawali sanalowe mu ground ndkumamenya nawo iye ntchito yake idathera ku training inakhalila ma player anthuwa kut amenye nkhondo #flames_siiidzamva

  30. I don’t blame the coach my self bt I blame water nyamilandu manda has failed us he must resign now now step aside water we need capable people who can handle fam

  31. He need time to settle leave him for next two years. Malawi players don’t have passionate. Changing coaches is not a solution. Give him another two years he will gain experience guys even our on Kinna Phiri failed so give Mtawali second chance.

  32. don’t blame the coach blame the Lesotho for winning the March mxaaa stupid malawians wen r u gonna accept that we r nt good at football!!! ife ndi amperekezi chabe dziko lililonse litakhara lodziwampira angamanyamule chinkho ndindani …. basi chill up guys after all its our country, our team, our pipo n there’s nothing u can do abt it!

  33. This coach does not kno a better combination.He did not plan when to kill the enermy.Our team kept on attaking with no intention.He must learn dat agoal can come from a counter attack like wat lesotho did.I there 4 put de blame on mtawali coz he failed to advise the guys and make constructive decisions

  34. mpira unatilaka bax tiyeni tzingotamba ndzomwe tmatha wlcm tiazbambo tithandizane kudya bonya nd mbatata zabookaz

  35. Yarp but he is agd coach he have maintained something fro malawi national team Ernest mtawali this is your team do not take another pliers just maintain this team. Ok mtawali. Am king of Ngulu Kingdom kristogeorge masikini. Malawi number One king

  36. uyu ndie ndi kape kape weniweni aaaaaaaa bein a gud player doesnt mean he cn b a gud coach… This z two dferent stuffs … Ine zimandikwana kukanika chilichose???? Mxxxxx

  37. Its just the breed that Mtawali has & has tarnished his cv as well as malawi’s image that even neighbours can laugh at us or feel pity. Now its just time 2 adjust & get used 2 b punched even with such underdogs.
