Same old story: Malawi humbled

150

As Malawians were busy celebrating Queen’s victory over Zimbabwe in their opening game at African Netball Cup in Uganda, Flames came out fast to spoil the party as they went 2-nil down to Tanzania in the Cosafa Castle Cup opening group A match at Moruleng Stadium in South Africa.

Yahya Ramadhan scored both goals in the opening 20 minutes of the match to send the guest nation top of the group.

Flames head coach Ronny Van Geneudgen used a very attacking minded formation, with Dalitso Sailesi, Jabulani Linje.

Malawi

Malawi lose 2-0 to Tanzania.

However, Flames were playing deep inside their own half, inviting trouble as Tanzania caught Malawi napping in the line off duty.

Tanzania got the opener in the 12th minute when Flames defence failed to clear a cross from the right flank, allowing Ramadhan to smash the ball past Ernest Kakhobwe in goals for Malawi.

At the other end, Malawi’s first shot at goal came from Dalitso Sailesi following an exchange of passes with Jabulani Linje.

Moments later, it was 2-nil. Ramadhan forced his way into the penalty box to slot past Kakhobwe into the back of the net, 2-0.

RVG then made a first half substitute, bringing on board Innocent Bokosi for Dennis Chembezi.

Sailesi, who was a marvel to watch, dribbled past two defenders to set up Yamikani Chester who fired wide from the goal.

Moments later, Lucky Malata almost reduced the affairs but his first touch let him down as he blasted his effort over the bar.

Come second half, Flames were a very much changed side as they pressed harder in search for goals but Taifa Stars’ shot-stopper was very outstanding between the two posts.

Bokosi’ thumping header was well saved by Tanzania’ goalkeeper before Linje’ miss inside the penalty box.

At the other end, Kakhobwe produced two stunning saves to deny Saimon Msuva and Elic Maguli from scoring.
Sailesi’ cross was well met in the penalty box by Bokosi only to fire wide from the goal mouth.

With some few minutes to play, Binwel Katinji was introduced for Simeon Singa as Malawi tried their level best to snatch something out of the game but Tanzania stood firm to collect first points of the competition.

After the final whistle, RVG said: “My boys were afraid in the first half and I was very surprised but during the half time, I talked to them and we played very well.

” It was very good to see the boys playing well and we have taken some positives ahead of the second game, ” he said.

Malawi will play Mauritius in their second game before completing their group A task with a clash against Angola.
Group winner will play South Africa in the quarterfinals of the competition.

  1. Flames got problem of defending.instead of marking the space,you see all defenders following one attacker leaving back line exponsed.no commucation at all.

  2. February February you are just a butthurt moron. Why u pointing finger to a trible? Ku Malawi kulibe mpira olo atakatenga anthu akumudzi kwanu akaluzabe. STFU imbecile

    • In malawi what I see and what I know about football ball team which is a national team. The problem you have when always I watch it playing is the lack of goal keeper and lack of socoring .inside the field the guys play very well but scoring becames a very big problem if you can improve on these two departments I think we can be a team to be proud of . Another think the players have got a feeling of inferiority whenever they are playing against other countries .
      Right now am planning to start my own team just to help in the development of soccer in malawi as a true supporter of soccer.

  3. Malawi fired Kinna Phiri who was one of the best coach that Malawi ever produced, since his departure i never saw a team rather a bunch of loosers, shameful indeed.

  4. Waste of money to hire coach all the way from Beljium and team is still failing to Deliver out of four games and only win once ,What mind of team is this one Mai Malawi dziko lokongedwa.

  6. Not surprising at all. How can you expect players who haven’t been featured at U17, U20 or U23 tournaments to do well at senior team? Its like expecting a learner to pass MSCE when infact he didn’t sat for PSLCE and JCE.

  7. Forget about the Flames its more than 20 years now we are still in the try and error system…we cant maintain the players so that they play together for a long time.. Those boys who grabbed the plate in at some time back in this same Cosafa where are they…

  18. We could ave listened to our president when he said there is no budget for flames. He didnt just utter those words, he knew what he meant. I personally believe that if we want to change our National team we shud start change the system herein referred as FAM. Nyamilandu and his team shud go from there dismiss the whole National team and start rebuilding the fresh ones not based on region or what ever.

  19. Nothing new.
    What did you expect ?
    Well done our Queens. We are proud of you.
    The power,
    The energy,
    The strength,
    And pride of our nation.

  29. It is known that if any one african team has, lets say, 5 teams to play with and it happens that Malawi is in its group it obviously knows that it has 4 teams to play with coz playing with Malawi flames is just part of its trainings in preparation for the 4 teams.
