Malawi national football team manager, James Sangala, has said he is impressed with the players’ attitude and level of fitness ahead of Friday’s dead-rubber Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifier against Morocco at Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe.

“It is really encouraging that the players are working very hard in training. They are eager to prove a point against Morocco. We have a very good group of players with the right attitude. We are confident that we can do something positive on Friday,” Sangala said.

The Flames received a boost on Tuesday after the United States’ North Carolina FC attacker Yamikani Chester joined the squad. Other foreign-based players in camp are John Banda, Gabadinho Mhango, Binwell Katinji, Gerald Phiri Junior and Stain Davie.

Former Be Forward Wanderers striker Albert Mpinganjira Wednesday said despite that the Flames are out of the competition, the match offers the players a chance to prove a point.

“Players need to show us that they deserve to play for the national team. Wearing national team colours was not a joke during our days, so the players should work hard. Playing against Morocco offers the players a chance to market themselves because scouts will watch the game,’ ’Mpinganjira said.
