Recalled Flames midfielder, Robert Ng’ambi, says time is ripe for the Malawi National Football Team to pay back its supporters when the side dates Swaziland in their last Group L 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at Kamuzu Stadium tomorrow.
The Platinum Stars midfielder was oftentimes overlooked by former Flames Coach, Ernest Mtawali, but he has been given a new lease of life by interim coach Nsazurwimo Ramadhan.
Ironically, Ramadhan has called several players that were being sidelined including Mozambique-based duo Christopher John Banda, Chimango Kayira and Micium Mhone of Jomo Cosmos.
“I am always ready to serve my country. I am no longer concentrating on what happened in the past because I just want to help the country to win against Swaziland,” Ng’ambi said.
The former Nyasa Big Bullets and defunct MDC United player said he was willing to follow the coach’s advice on what role to play.
“I don’t mind if I play or not. What I want is that we should play as a team. We need to be united to give the supporters something to smile about. If I am on bench I don’t mind as long as the team plays to win,” he said.
Ng’ambi also called supporters to embrace the making see red campaign to intimidate Swaziland.
Make Them See Red campaign is a Times Group brainchild which was launched in October 2008 as Flames defeated DR Congo 2-1.
