Flames’ foreign based players arrived in Malawi on Monday and joined the rest of the local players in camp ahead of their 2017 ceremonial African Cup of Nations showdown against Swaziland this coming weekend at Kamuzu Stadium.
Flames captain Limbikani Mzava, Gabadinho Mhango, Robert Ng’ambi, Micium Mhone, John Banda, Chimango Kayira and Gerald Phiri Jnr arrived on Monday through Chileka International Airport where they were welcomed by Football Association of Malawi (FAM) General Secretary Suzgo Nyirenda and Flames team manager Clement Kafwafwa.
The only foreign based player yet to arrive is Charles Swini who is expected to jet in later today.
Upon arrival, Mzava vowed to end the campaign on a very high note saying the team owe the nation victory having performed badly in the previous games.
“We owe the nation a lot and we will give it all in order to win this final game. We never anticipated to have such a bad campaign but that’s football and the only way to bring back smiles on Malawians is to win this game,” said Mzava.
Winless in group L, Malawi lies bottom with two points having lost three games, with two other matches ending up in draws.
In the reverse fixture, Malawi surrendered a 2-1 lead to draw with Swaziland in Mbambane.
