Flames Coach Meke Mwase has taken on board a 22 member squad for the two friendlies.

The first match will be on Friday while the second one will be played on Sunday at Sesotho Stadium.

Mwase has retained the bulk of his squad that eliminated Botswana in the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers last month with defender Trevour Kalema and midfielders Felix Zulu and Mike Mkwate as the new additions.

According to Mwase, the Flames will feature two different line ups during the two games.

Meanwhile, Malawi Under 17 National Football team Head Coach Deklerk Msakakuona has named the final 20 member squad to represent Malawi in the forthcoming COSAFA Youth Championship scheduled for 11-20 October in Blantyre.

Malawi is in group A with South Africa, Zambia and Eswatini.

The boys will start their group A campaign with a game against South Africa on 12 October before meeting Eswatini on 14th and finally Zambia on 16th.
