Kalisto Pasuwa

…team to regroup on Friday…

The Malawi Under 23 national football team will from tomorrow hold a five-day camp at the Mpira Village in Blantyre to kickstart their preparations for the forthcoming COSAFA Cup.

FAM Competitions and Communications Director Gomezgani Zakazaka said the team would like to use the ongoing FIFA break to hold its first camp ahead of the competition which will be held in South either later this month or July as per COSAFA Communication .

“We would like the coaches to have at least some five days with the players . This is a FIFA window, and all players will be available which gives the coach an opportunity to see the group he will be working with.

“The other camping sessions as we go towards the competition will be done using the normal three-day camping model of balancing club and national teams activities. So, this is the only period that they will stay long together and we thought it wise that is should be utilized as we wait for the  Cosafa tournament official dates,” said Zakazaka.

Kalisto Pasuwa will be the head coach for the team with Bob Mpinganjira and Prichard Mwanza as first and second assistant coaches respectively.

Joseph Malizani is the team manager with Tawonga Chimodzi as Data Analysts. Gladys Ngodo is the team manager while former Flames international Fischer Kondowe will act as the Fitness trainer.
