    I wishes all the best guys.

  4. Bristol says:

    This is a good side. The coaching panel knows this list of players will produce needed result next week. I agree with those who say that Malawi must be trained in a fast game otherwise Algeria can cause havoc. Don’t forget that we beat them 3-0 in Angola & therefore can not underrate us. Go Flames!!!!!!!!!!!!! Go Flames !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! To burn the Algerians

    Proffesionals? What a joke? Get the locals players.

  6. geoffrey mzembe says:

    they should also work on pace. algeria is a fast team in field of play… if we will be slow then we will. invite ourselves trouble. lets play fast football.. . lets get example from our neighbour zambia. strikers should also be aggressive and defenders should also be challenging.

  7. geoffrey mzembe says:

    thus the same selection over and over, the coach. should give chance to other players who are proffesaionals in other countries as well not only basing PLS. but the focus should be on ball posession and creating chances that will be converted into goals. and the team should deploy good morden tactics because algelia is one of the heavy weights in our continent. the team should be defending as early as first half…. we need to attack more if we are defend goals and win. no need of featuring 5 defenders.

  8. Aferazao says:

    Are the players prying their soccer careers in South Africa, Zimbabwe, DR Congo and Mozambique and where else in Africa professionals or just foreign based Malawian players? Please school me because I do not see any professionalism in the way they play soccer. At times some of the local players we have play far far much better than the so called ‘Professionals’

    All the best flames

  10. Black Market says:

    Deus Mkutu is the long-overdue Flames striker to feature. He is tall, energetic and intelligent enough with scoring tricks many of the current Flames strikers dont have. Why not trying him?

  11. Namu! says:

    Take care flames because you will be playing a team that went to the World Cup finals in Brazil and performed well. Do not bank on the previous victory that you had over Algeria in Angola. Forget about that and concentrate on the game at hand. You are a good team but one wonders why we never win the Africa Cup of Nations nor qualify for the World Cup finals. We need a change of mentality. Coaches please work on the psychology of the players. They need to be tough minded and never entertain the thought of “we are ahead” when they are 1 or 2 goals ahead of the other team. They need to play like Germany who when conditions permit can bag in 7 goals as they did against Brazil.

    Sorry, i meant MLOMWE and not Mlomwe.kikikikikiki!!!!

  13. vindere says:

    Mlomwe, just express yourself in cholomwe or chichewa. I can’t understand a word of what you’ve written.

  15. Mlomwe says:

    Albeit you leave Kanyenda for Gaba, Kanyenda has a great impact on the game. The problem is that the technical panel listens to the media which inturn blames you for poor perfiormance. Bring on Kanyenda to be able to push those tall and strong Algerians.

  16. Esau Salamu says:

    Good squad. What we’re waiting is for the FLAMES to consume Foxes of the desert.

  17. MLOMWE says:

    The flames , the things what we need is solidiality as one family as Big Bullets when playing.The most problem our flames team selffishing when take the ball not share one another everybody he want to goal.So your goal is not your family is for nation.So lets share one another as the nation we can win the game.Algeria is hard team so players & coach join hands but anyamata athu makani tiyeni tiKamumvere coach zomwe akakambe ku chiwembe.

    Go on flames & burn de derset
