Flames captain Joseph Kamwendo promised to produce positive results to as a payback to the gesture that Carlsberg had showed through the donation.

“For us to give back we need to get the results,” Kamwendo said.

Fools. How do T-shirts and travelling bags motivate players? Carlesberg & TNM are corporate idiots. I read each weekend tnm giving out a t-shirt to a man of the match and now these corporate fools are also giving out travelling bags and t-shirts to motivate players. You mean these players are too poor to an extent that they can’t buy these stupid items. Musatichititse manyadzi apa. Donate boots, increase players allowances or better still give them bottles of beer.
Come on boys in red!!! Beat Zimbabwe Muntharika will give you 500k each.

Come on Carlsberg, do you want to tell us that a National team player should use a bag & leave it after the camp or the match??????? That doesn’t make sense. These are not school kids they’re national team players umphawi wake wantundu wanji muja munayambira kuwaledzeletsa anthu muja??????

Stop joking Kamwendo,Zimbabwe will rip you apart as long as they bring their full-strength squad.Malawi is weak in all departments;it can’t even showcase one reputable star from Europe.Zimbabwe has fiery players like Knowledge Musona,Willard Katsande,Nyasha Mushekwi,Khama Billiat to name just a few.

Malawi’s captain Kamwendo can’t even play for 20% of any game at his DRC club and yet he is making fake promises now.To be honest,this generation of Malawian players is the worst in terms of talent,physique,and consistency. Calling players like Chimango Kayira,Malata,Harry Nyirenda,Nyondo etc. is exposing your own mediocrity.
