The Malawi National Football team planned trip to South Africa has been shifted to Thursday 22 June due to cash problems, Nyasa Times has established.
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.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
