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.
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Harawa has been replaced by his team mate at Moyale Juma Chikwenga and another team mate Lloiyd Njaluwa is a new face on the list.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
Swaziland. The local players are expected to start camp training on Monday 17th August 2015 at the Chiwembe Technical Centre,” states a press release signed by FAM General Secretary Suzgo Nyirenda.
