LEARNING CURVE—Under-23 in action against STVV

Malawi under-23 national football team Coach, Meke Mwase, has said his charges should expect a tough match against Egypt on Friday night.

The junior Flames arrived in Egypt on Sunday after playing training matches in Belgium, where they claimed two wins, two losses and two draws.

Mwase on Monday said playing against an African side would be important as he fine-tunes the squad ahead of March 20 and 26 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifiers against Zambia.

“We do not really know their strength and weaknesses but, for sure, it will be a tough match. Egypt will offer us a chance to make final touchés ahead of the Zambia game,” he said.

Malawi face Zambia at Kamuzu Stadium in the first leg before travelling to Lusaka for the reverse fixture.

While in Belgium, Malawi lost by 3-1 margins to STVV and Oud- Heverlee Leuven but beat KRC Genk 3-2 and Roda JC 1-0 before a 1-1 draw against Patro MM and 2-2 draw with SP Hasselt.

Overall winner between Malawi and Zambia date either Burundi or Congo Brazaville in June 2019, with the ultimate winner booking a place at the finals scheduled for Egypt in November 2019.
