Malawi national team and Platinum Stars international midfielder Robert Ng’ambi on Sunday helped his side to grab the second three points in the new league season as his side beat Jomo Cosmos 2-1 at the Olen Park Stadium.

Stars hanged on and managed to collect full maximum three points despite playing with ten men for about 50 minutes following a first half straight red card flashed to Ndumiso Mabena.

Ng’ambi scored the first goal twelve minutes into the first half before Eleanor Rodgers increased the tally of goals in the 31st minute to put the game beyond Cosmos reach in the first half.

In the second half, Cosmos tried their best to come back into the game but their efforts were not enough as they only managed to pull back only a one goal in the 73rd minute.

Ng’ambi’s impressive performance comes barely after a week since he was shunned by his national team coach Ernest Mtawali.

The skilful midfielder was left warming the Flames bench during the entire 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifying match against Swaziland away in Swaziland which ended 2-2.

The development has brought mist as the player openly expressed his disappointment towards Mtawali’s action.

Meanwhile, local soccer experts have called upon the Flames coach to spare sometime and sit down with Ng’ambi to resolve their differences for the good of the Flames.

Flames next fixture is a World Cup qualifying encounter against Tanzania away next month.

There is no news here,nothing to be excited about.Ng’ambi scored and is scoring in a Sub-standard league;everybody should look at the performance of RSA teams in CAF tournaments,quite poor,and even the national team gets clobbered by stupid teams in Africa.This is a demonstration of lower standards of football in South Africa. Ng’ambi is a good player but his capabilities could be properly proved in a competitive European league not this fancy league that hardly develops players.South African players bear testimony to this such that when they go ply their trade in Europe they return sooner than later because they can’t… Read more »
He scored? So what? APM was/is a lawyer in America, but look at him here in Malawi. We always put all effort when we are doing something in foreign land because we know that a lot is at stake, and we want to make our mark. But when we are back home, there nothing to challenge us so we stop pushing ourselves beyond limits. FOR ME HE CAN SCORE ALL HE WANTS BUT IF HE IS NOT DESCIPLINED ENOUGH HERE AT HOME, he can go to hell! The coach needs to be able to control his players! If players start… Read more »

Amene mukufuna ma proff anuwo game ya zimbabwe young analakwa chani poti analowetsa ma proff amene mukufuna. Munawina kapena? Swaziland is an improved team and the strongest in the group. They beat guinea 2-0, zimbabwe drew with guinea and we lost to zim. Our young boys drew with away 2-2 but you cannot appreciate.


Playing at club is different from national level. I think ntawali deserves a pat on the back. There is nothing special in Sa league. Kunonso Anthu akuchinya mma club.
