Mafco FC marksman Richard Mbulu has expressed excitement with his inclusion in the Flames squad which started camping on Sunday ahead of a crucial African Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifying match against Zimbabwe and the Cosafa Cup next month.
This was not the first time for Mbulu to be handed a call up at the national team but previously failed to make it into the final squad.
Mbulu told Nyasa Times in an interview that this time he is ready to deliver and make a break through.
“I am very happy because this is the time I have all along being waiting for. Let me also thank the coach for my inclusion in the squad. If given a chance, I will not disappoint and I consider myself
already in [the final squad]” said Mbulu.
He also urged Malawians to expect good things from him and the rest of the squad.
“I am urging all Malawians to expect good things from me and the rest of the guys. We will do the good job Malawians are expecting” he added.
Mbulu has become a house hold name and talk of the town after scoring 16 goals in his club’s two presidential cup assignments against Mkweza Youth 15-0 and Ambassadors 13-0.
He also scored the winning goal in Mafco’s 3-2 thumping over Mighty Be Forward Wanderers in a TNM Super League match last week.
He is yet to prove his superiority at national level as he compete against top strikers at the Flames squad like Chikepo Msowoya, Muhammad Sulumba and Gabadinho Mhango while dawning the Flames jersey.
