Mozambique club courts Blue Eagles


By Mabvuto Kambuwe:

Mozambican club Ferroviario de Nampula have expressed interest in camping in Malawi for pre-season preparations.

Eagles Chairperson Alexander Ngwala and Eagles legal advisor Williams Nkhoma confirmed that they might host Nampula next month.


However, Nkhoma said the two clubs were still discussing possible dates for the strength-testing matches.

“We are at a planning stage because they requested for any date between now and February. We are discussing with other stakeholders because they were proposing to play two games. We are yet to agree with the teams they proposed,” Nkhoma said.

“They proposed to play either Nyasa Big Bullets or Be Forward Wanderers but we have not yet engaged them because we want to seek guidance from Football Association of Malawi since it is the first time for us to arrange such a friendly. Thereafter, we will formally write either of the two if they can play a friendly match with them in Blantyre.”


Nampula are home to former Eagles striker Schumacher Kuwali. Until recently, John ‘CJ’ Banda, who has joined Mozambique champions UD Songo on a one-year-deal, was a Nampula player.

Eagles won the Airtel Top 8 Cup last season but they will not defend it as they finished on position 11 with 35 points.

Meanwhile, Kuwali is yet to re-join the Mozambican club as discussions with parent club, Eagles, are underway.

Ngwala said the deal has been shelved as Eagles are demanding payment for his one-year loan deal.

“Our discussions are going on very well and he may return to Mozambique soon. We do not want to block the player because the player will advance his career,” he said.

Kuwali scored nine goals in all competitions last season in Mozambique, despite playing few games due to injuries.

Nampula finished on fourth position on the Mocambola League log table last season.
