The Football Association of Malawi (FAM) have released a list of fresh squad for Flames camp ahead of an international friendly against China on January 28 which will ne among the list of activities to spice up the official opening of the newly built state of the art national stadium in Lilongwe.
Earlier on Friday, FAM issued a statement bactracking the call-up citing some reasons behind the move.
“We have three major tasks ahead if we include the Cosafa and looking at where we are coming from we need to create a new crop of players for the senior national team. More than half of the players that we had called earlier have been in the Flames setup before.
“So we are replacing the regulars with under 23 players to be assessed for inclusion in the Chan and Afcon plans.
“Gerald Phiri and his assistant De Clerk Msakakuona are junior national team coaches ( Under 20 and Under 17 respectively) so this platform will help complement their efforts of nurturing young talent for elite performance which they started with respective Cosafa assignments last year. We sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused by the review,” said FAM General Secretary Alfred Gunda in the statement.
