Malawi national football team caretaker Coach, Meke Mwase, has hinted he will maintain the squad that drew 0-0 with eSwatini during the first leg of the 2020 Africa Nations Championship qualifier on Saturday.
“As a coaching panel, we will be monitoring games this weekend so that we should rope in those that will impress. However, chances are high that we will maintain the squad that drew in eSwatini,” the former Flames defence pillar said.Advertisement
The coaching panel will likely monitor players during the Airtel Top 8 games this weekend while the TNM Super League will also be in progress.
The Flames are expected to regroup after the weekend’s games ahead of the second leg set for May 11.
Mwase also said his charges had all the chances to advance to the next round.
“We drew away and it is not easy to achieve that feat. Now, we have to make home-ground advantage count,” he said.
Mwase is heading a three-member technical panel, having replaced Ronny van Geneugden whose contract was not renewed when it expired last month.
Be Forward Wanderers Coach Bob Mpinganjira and Silver Strikers mentor Lovemore Fazili are assisting Mwase.
The panel’s first game ended goalless at Mavuso Sports Centre in eSwatini, where the Flames missed several scoring opportunities.
