The Malawi beach soccer national team stumbled at this year’s Copa Dar-es-Salaam Tournament in Tanzania after finishing on fourth position to surrender silver medals they won last year.

In a third-place match played Sunday afternoon, Malawi lost to Seychelles 11-12. It was a painful defeat as Malawi started the campaign on a high note after beating Seychelles 8-3 on Friday.

Before the third-place match, Malawi were favourites after the win against Seychelles.

Malawi failed to maintain the momentum on Saturday as they lost 12-8 to Uganda before going down 5-2 to hosts Tanzania.

Speaking earlier after losing to Tanzania, Malawi Coach, Stereo Gondwe, said, at times, officiation at the tournament was not at its best.
