Malawi Under-20 begin camping today


The Malawi Under 20 national football team goes into camp today ahead of COSAFA Under-20 championship which will start next month.

According to a press release from Football Association of Malawi (FAM) signed by general secretary Alfred Gunda, 28 players have been called up to start camping at Mpira village at Chiwembe technical centre in Blantyre from Monday 13th November.


28 players have been called up to start camping.

Mike Mkwate, Kondwani Mwaila, Haji Wali, Precious Sambani, Peter Banda and Abel Mwakilama are some of the players who have been called up.
The young Flames are expected to start their tournament with a match against Swaziland in Kitwe district of Zambia at Arthur Davies stadium.

Malawi are in group A together with the COSAFA defending champions Zambia, Swaziland and Uganda.

The Group of Death in this year’s tournament appears to be Group B as last year’s runners-up South Africa must contend with North African guests Egypt, Mozambique and Mauritius.

Group C will also be a tough one to call with Angola, Lesotho, Namibia and Zimbabwe vying for top spot.

The top teams in each pool advance to the semifinals along with the best-placed runner-up.

Matches will be played at the Arthur Davies and Nkana stadiums in Kitwe. Angola will also be in action on the opening day against Namibia.

The group stage will be completed on December 12, followed by a rest day, with the semifinals to be staged at the Arthur Davies Stadium on December 14.

The third-place play-off and the final will move to the Levy Mwanawasa in Ndola on December 16.
