Flames Coach, Ronny Van Geneugden, has dropped goalkeeper Owen Chaima and left-back Yamikani Fodya from his 20-member squad that is travelling to South Africa today for this year’s Cosafa Castle Cup tournament.
Van Geneugden said he has taken the best Super League players that will make the nation proud.
He said the team is in good shape despite losing the services of foreign-based players who were recalled by their South African and Mozambican clubs.
“We are prepared for the tournament and I have selected the best players that will do the job in South Africa,” van Geneugden said.
The Belgian has picked Brighton Munthali and Ernest Kakhobwe as goalkeepers while Stanley Sanudi, John Lanjesi, Peter Cholopi, Lucky Malata, Chisomo Mpachika, Denis Chembezi, Ian Chinyama and Francis Mlimbika are making the trip as defenders.
Midfielders are Chikoti Chirwa, Simeon Singa, Levison Maganizo, Yamikani Chester and Dalitso Sailesi, with the frontline consisting of Jabulani Linje, Binwell Katinji, Khuda Muyaba and Innocent Bokosi.
Before the announcement of the travelling squad at Mpira Village in Blantyre, FDH Bank handed over a cheque worth K30 million as part of the three-year sponsorship deal with the Football Association of Malawi.
FDH Marketing Officer, Ronald Chimchere, said the bank was happy to see the team win 1-0 against Comoros Islands in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match a fortnight ago.
