l ve just want to know the names of local players who iz in the acamp


I wishes all the best guys.


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.

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.

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.


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

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?
