Initially, the Flames were scheduled to depart for South Africa ahead of the Cosafa tournament on Wednesday 21 June. However, it is reported that some logistical hiccups have forced Football Association of Malawi (FAM) authorities to push the trip to Thursday.

The team will train again on Wednesday at Chiwembe from 10 am and later at MDC in the afternoon .

It is believed that Coach Ronny Van Geneugden will maintain the current squad in camp with all the players set to travel to South Africa.

The Flames were hit a blow following the withdrawal of South African and Mozambican based players as the tournament does not fall under the FIFA calendar.

In the tournament, the Flames are in group A alongside Tanzania, Angola and Mauritius. Their opening match is on 25 June against Tanzania.

Bravo South African and Mozambican clubs for refusing to release the Malawian players for the Cosafa tournament. We are always afraid why? Our friends use local players for such tournaments in to scout players for the senior national team. for instance a year ago Flames played with Angola youthful side which was its under 20 but us we featured old and mature players. we beat them because of our age but in term of skills they were better of than us. Let these youngster prove to us that they can deliver.
