3 more Flames players injured


By Williams Gondwa:

Three more Flames players have been ruled out of the African Nations Championship match against eSwatini at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre on Saturday.

Be Forward Wanderers defenders Peter Cholopi, Dennis Chembezi and TN Stars striker Stain Davie have joined, on the injury list, Alfred Manyozo Junior (Wanderers), Peter Banda and Patrick Phiri (Nyasa Big Bullets).


Flames caretaker Coach, Meke Mwase, said he had replacements for the injured players. Cholopi, Phiri and Manyozo featured in the first leg which ended goalless in eSwatini.

“We have quite a number of good players that can replace those who are injured,” Mwase said.

Malawi needs only any win to qualify for the second round of the competition which is reserved for home-based players. eSwatini need any scoring draw to sail through.


Football Association of Malawi General Secretary, Alfred Gunda, said eSwatini will jet in Friday.

“We have received communication from eSwatini Football Association that their delegation will arrive after 5pm through Chileka International Airport. This means they will miss their training session due to their late arrival,” Gunda said.
