Former Blue Eagles and Mighty Be Forward Wanderers Striker Wister Phiri who now plays for Comoros Island side Fomboni F.C has confessed that he is looking forward to put on national colours and play for the Malawi national soccer team the Flames.
Phiri said this on Sunday after his club was booted out of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) competition by Bullets F.C 3-2 on aggregate.
“I will try to work hard and keep my self in a good form because it is the performance of a player that matters most. If the coaches [Flames] are impressed with my performance, they will surely call me into camp,” said Phiri who had a grand game against Bullets on Saturday.
According to Phiri, being a professional player without having a taste of playing for your country means nothing to any players’ history.
“For the sake of history, I am playing professional football but I strongly wish to one day play for my country” he said.
Commenting on Phiri’s dream, Flames Coach Young Chimodzi said the door is open for the player if he performs well.
“Everything goes with hard working and consistency; the chance is there and since we have watched him and we know where he is playing – Comoros Island [through CAF games against Bullets], we just now need to be following him up” said Chimodzi.
Meanwhile, Phiri who will be going back to Comoros Island in a week time said he will be training with his former club Blue Eagles to keep himself in good shape.
