Kondowe, who is top form at  his club Bullets, has been sidelined for national team duty in this campaign.

But Football Association of Malawi (FAM), which released the call-up on Friday at Chiwembe Technical and Development Centre, included Kondowe.

The controversial and outspoken winger said he was happy to be recalled.

“I am happy that the coach has recalled me. I will do all I can to help the team if I can be given the chance,” Kondowe said.

South Africa based professional Kanyenda has also been considered for the national team duty as the Flames seek to qualify for the third Afcon finals appearance.

The Flames, currently facing goalkeeping crises with the inconsistent and unimpressive performance of McDonald Harawa and Richard Chipuwa have also recalled Charles Swini who was sidelined after an injury.

The Flames have also recalled Mozambique based professional Zicco Mkanda who has inspired his team Liga Desportiva Maculmana to a league title by scoring 11 goals just three behind top goal scorer in Mozambique.

Bullets Under-20 sensational defender Miracle Gabeya has also be included in the team.

The following is the full list squad:
Goal Keepers;  Macdonald Harawa, Richard Chipuwa, Charles Swini
Defenders; Francis Mlimbika, Bashir Maunde, Sankhani Mkandawire, John Lanjesi, Harry Nyirenda, Limbikani Mzava, Miracle Gabeya
Midfielders; Frank Banda, Phillip Masiye, Mecium Mhone, Young Chimodzi Jr, Fischer Kondowe, Robert Ng’ambi, Josephy Kamwendo, Chimango Kayira
Strikers; Gastin Simkonda, Kelvin Hanganda, Peter Wadabwa, Zicco Mkanda, Gabadihno Mhango, Robin Ngalande, Esau Kanyenda

Coaches: Young Chimodzi, Jack Chamangwana and Franco Ndawa

    kodi madefender awa tinene kuti anatha: Lucky Malata, Moses Chavula, Dagalous Chilambo, James Sangala, Foster Namwela

  13. wamaban says:

    I know Young has recalled fisher coz of pressure from bullets fans. Fisher will not change anything in the team. Akanyendaso antha. This only shows that even if Mponda returns to footabla, he will also be recalled. Anawa adzamenya liti mpira.

    awo machine pa chikopa munthu wamkulu amatha musadele nkhawa aMalawi pachitika kanthu

  15. Chikopa says:

    We do not have defending midfieder when we are wining find astrong player on the mid, now that chomodzi is back to his sence and fisher is back you can use him in the last 20mins todefend fisher can do both, the job you have as coach is to remove pressure off on Gaba tell him that even if he don’t score it don’t matter but if he passes the ball someone scores is very impotant for malawi . At the moment if you have obseved Gaba is even falling to control why too much pressure on him. So gaba should be in fiest eleven and Ngalande as winger fishe and kanyenda should came in to defend as exep players good lucky think big bc tactically you are very poor

  16. chishimba says:

    kondowe ukachitise manyazi poipulumutsa malawi uli boo,amfumu a kanyenda prove that you’re vetelan by doing what nobody could think of kagoletse zigoli fisher kamwendo mbali zonse azikakuponyela ndiwe wamtali kagoletse osangotulukamo mground ngati munalibe wamkulu,good luck guys

  17. shoes says:

    I don’t know see the reason why you pick Young Chimodzi Jnr he is rubbish. You should have used Fischer a long time ago what a useless bunch of coaches

  25. zebe says:

    Mbuzı za ma coach!!! too late. You should have overhauled the squad and recall some of these ın form players way long tıme ago. But u chose to use names. What did you get from Chiukepo Msowoya? Rabish

    anong’a nde team tsopano malawi iyamba kuwina

    The best

  28. Khalidwe Madeya says:

    Honestly, Flames has performed badly in recent years because they ignored these two guys – Fischer and Esau. Despite the so called bad behaviour by Fischer, the boy is an asset to the country. We should also not just forget Mwafulira. The combination of Esau and Mwafulira was causing problems to the defence. This is not what you can expect from Roben Ngalande, Gaba, Simkonda – No!! These guys guys play soccer as accounts – very clean. No, we need to use tactics, force, brains, opportunities, experience etc. Lets have these guys start in the next game. Zikomo.

  29. Bristol says:

    Go Flames!!!!!!!!!!! Go Flames!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! to scorch Mali and Ethiopia during next games. We love you maflames.

    Fuck Young and Jack! Akanachita zimenezi kalekale bwenzi titapanga kolify kalekale!

  32. zoba mwambetanya says:

    Good to hear that these guys(Fischer and Esau) have been recalled. would have loved to see James Chilapondwa being recalled as well. Anawa Mpira alinawo kutali. in other African countries the Didier Drogbas played for their teams for a long time. they only stoppedAFTER SEEING TO IT THAT ANA OBWERA AKHWIMA OSATI NGATI IFE PLAYER TWO GAMES MAN OF THE MATCH KU SUPERLEAGUE MCHOMBO ULI LENDE TILI TIYENI AKASEWERE NATIONAL TEAM!!!! ZACHIBWANA!!! by the way why is Moses \Chavula still not playing for the National team anymore? inu bwanji mpira ku Malawi basi munthu kungofika zaka 25 timati wakula? thats the time imene player amakhala kuti wapanga mature and nzeru za mpira zadzadzamo….. ma officials a mpira pa club level m,ukupha Mpiara pa Malawi…. zamkutu!!!!”

  33. "NATIVE OF NOWHERE" says:

    Its too late 4 Kanyenda and Kondowe 2 b recalled. Is it because Kanyenda scored a brace and Kondowe playing well and r re called? Why now?
    Good riddance of Saintfiet by Free State Stars and Kinnah back as caretaker coach. Kinnah u r a gud coach never lose focus and Rantsi Mokoena must stop using Kinnah as 911 emergency number, needing him when the team is going down the drain. This is not gud 4 Kinnah and the players.

  34. Clement Madeira says:

    This new look flames make belive we can be to another afcon finals, only if we can improve on goal keeping. Welcome back fisher! Essau! And go go young without fear.

  35. Mbolo Sidwala! says:

    Mr Coach, it’s good to swallow one’s pride for the sake of nation, sizija munayankhula after Algeria game ayi. U showed personal hatred against Anong’a! Go Jah man and company go. Prove to the coaches that age is nothng but a number! Apa ndiye Morocco ija yatheka, believe u me!

  36. mr soccer says:

    kodi inu a FAM are we building the team or destroying IT?? why including this 2 overaged players what a shame malawi will never learn at all..lets build a better tean imene ingachite compt zaka zikubwerazi..eveen kamwendo magamu omaliza akhalwe amenewa…ana asewere mpira..good example talimbana ndi Chavula asakutithandiza kodi FM7 SAKUSEWERA BWINO??

    Congrats to Anong’a but it’s too late for FAM and Flames Coaching Panel to save Babylon now

  41. Zikomo PA says:

    The team looks better now, but Ian Chinyama must be considered in this team. He is the right choice for better defending tactics due to his height, fitness and confidence on the ball basing on the fact that we are meeting teams with tall players almost in all departments. he can also make a good left winger with his fast runs he is used to. With Fisher on the right, we now dont have strong left winger which is a weakness, playing well must be coupled with brevity and havoc in opponents’ side.
