Malawi football squad announced: Harawa dropped, Chikwenga included

Football Association of Malawi (FAM) has released a list of 26 local based players to start preparations for the Africa Cup of Nations on Monday at Chiwembe Technical and Development Centre.

Harawa: Dropped

Harawa: Dropped

Newly appointed coach Ernest Mtawali has dropped Moyale Barracks goalkeeper McDonald Harawa who was probably the first choice under coach Young Chimodzi.

Not much has changed as Mtawali wants to build around youth and experience by maintaining Bullets veteran striker Fischer  Kondowe.

Harawa has been replaced by his team mate at Moyale Juma Chikwenga and another team mate Lloiyd Njaluwa is a new face on the list.

“Kindly find attached the Malawi national football team call up -(locals) for the 2017 AFCON Group I Qualifiers against Swaziland slated for 6th September 2015 at Lobamba Stadium (artificial turf) in

  1. To say the fact this is not the team can take us to afcon & worldcup guys. We just wasting our money. Get ready to be sacked in the two or three games. Best local coach is only kin, to say the fact.

  2. william says:

    So Mr Mtawali is the the list that you have come up with after consultations. Did your hand play any part or its all peoples ideas. Tidziwe kupangila pa mawa zinthu zikadzasokonekera tidzadziwe omufunsa.

  3. Richard. Banda says:

    Why not Richard Chipuwa?zodabwitsa!Munfuna mukakadzola dzigoli.

  4. chenda says:

    Mwapala mr mtawali, team yimeneyo siyikaphula kanthu ku swazi. Ndimatsewela amenewo

  5. please use these local players not those who are spending their time on the bench in the name of profesionals.Include them but not use them if u want to bring success in the country.LONG LIVE THE FRAMES

  6. Black market says:

    Charles swini, Richard Chipuwa, Juma chikwenga are the final picks to Swaziland. I remember the way Swini manned the goal posts in Cosafa game, it was superb, Malawi won Zambia without going into Penalties.
    Final defenders will b lanjesi, mzava, Malata, fodya, club n flames are different levels. Malata is a national team level defender but playing on the Middle the guy is too tough n fear no striker no wonder he earns more cards than others at club level. We need a tough team that can withstand pressure from opposition that’s where our weakness is. No wonder we concede early when leading.
    Please make sure we have tough n hungry players only especially from midfield onwards. Esau n chiukepo can combine well, Egypt is the witness. CJ, MM can start in the wings, Blackberry n GP or RN are my picks on the middle with FRank waiting to diffuse any danger there.

    Good luck Enerst, we are behind u.

  18. Bishop Chirwa says:

    Why is Juma Chikwenga (Moyale Barracks) appearing twice on Goalkeepers list? May be there’s another keeper from the club that FAM wanted to call up? Please correct this anomaly.

  40. opportunist says:

    They have messed up on choice of goalkeepers.I don’t think they can meet the demand of post

  41. Hastings says:

    Some do play well at club level coz of their team mates ask them whom they think is a match marker

  42. The good squad. The only problem with our coaches is how to position players. Mr coach, what malawians need are goals not shining football like that of Arsenal but without goals. Good luck

  43. That’s good choice Mtawali. All the best.

  44. dennis mhango says:

    Mtawali ulibe nthawi akuchotsaso. There’s no genuine change

  45. Austin says:

    All the best of gud lucky
