TO BE RELEASED FOR CLUB MATCHES—Malata (centre) and other Flames players

Malawi national football team Coach, Meck Mwase, is today expected to release his charges from camp training for this weekend’s club assignments.

The team’s home-based players regrouped on Sunday at Mpira Village in Blantyre ahead of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against South Sudan and Uganda next month.

The players will be involved in TNM Super League and Fisd Challenge Cup matches before rejoining camp on Sunday.

Mwase said he was impressed with his charges’ response during training.

“I am excited that our training sessions went on well. When we resume on Monday, there will be no break until we play South Sudan and Uganda,” Mwase said.

Meanwhile, Be Forward Wanderers defender Lucky Malata, who has returned to the national team after quitting in 2015, said he was happy to be back.

Malata announced his retirement just after the Flames had won the 2015 Cosafa plate in Rustenburg, South Africa.

However, the former Silver Strikers skipper did not disclose reasons for his change of mind to join Mwase’s squad.

“I think we should not dwell much on the reasons. I sat down with the coach and I thought it wise to accept his call. Most of the faces in the team are quite new and it is exciting to interact with them,” Malata said.

The Flames kick-start the qualifiers with a fixture against South Sudan on November 13 before travelling to Kampala for a clash against Uganda three days later.
