Malawi national football team captain Joseph Kamwendo has urged coach Ernest Mtawali to offer him a chance to return to the squad against Guinea in the team.
Kamwendo, who is on off-season break from DRC’s top league team, said he was ready to fight for his place in the national team even if it means coming in for trials.
“I am ready to return to the national team because I put my country first before anything else,” Kamwendo said.
“I am urging the coach to consider calling me even if it means coming for trials so that I should be assessed.”

He also disclosed that he still had seven more years before hanging up his boots.
The versatile attacking midfielder also backed South Africa based holding midfielder Robert Ng’ambi to be considered for a recall in the squad.
Ng’ambi, who plies his trade at South Africa’s top league side Platinum Stars, fell out with coach Mtawali after openly expressed his dissent for being sidelined in the starting line-up against Swaziland.

“Baggio [Robert Ng’ambi] is playing regularly for a top team in a top South African league which makes his services needed in the team,” he said.
