The association has set winning the Cosafa Cup and qualifying for the next round of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations as the targets for coach Young Chimodzi and his assistant Jack Chamangwana if they are to be considered for contract extensions. Their one-year contracts will expire in July.

“The team has had enough time for preparations, we arranged three games against Tanzania, Zambia and they will play a training game against South Africa, and therefore, there should be no excuses, no scapegoats,” Nyamilandu said.

“In fact, we did all that to ensure that there will be no regrets that we should have done this or that,” said the FAM boss.

Chimodzi said the target set by FAM is achievable, saying they I have assembled “the best local squad “that has been further strengthened with some foreign-based players.

“It is not a mission impossible, we can do it,” said Chimodzi who called for “determination” and an approach to the tournament with the “right attitude”.

He said: “Yes we can, nothing is impossible”.

Flames previously managed to reach the final twice but lost in both occasions to South Africa and Zimbabwe

Other coaches are also eying the same targets, it is a battle for survival for the competing teams coaches, as only one team can win the trophy, only two dan reach the finals. Best of luck to the Malawi tacticians.

If u just lose here Young Chimodzi, it’s better just go and drop a coach. Before comes violence.

The coaches will be on the bench, massage sent to wrong people. Even Mourinho coaching Malawian players, he has no chance of winning anything. How many times are we going to say that the problem is not the coach, but the material(players) is sub-standard.

After the Mozambique game, our national team coach will sing his favorite song, THE BOYS PLAYED VERY WELL BUT THEY COULDN’T SCORE. That is Young Chimodzi favorite song.

Mukamva kudzikwata ndi chala nde uku mukuchita inuzo. Which prayers can bring those results mpakana chikho thii pa Malawi. The same team last week were betten by Zambia 2 kwa nothing. You were betten by Zimbabwe 4 kuchiyani kaya at home that is. Now you say they should bring the cup here as a measure of their contract. Mangofuna chabe kwachotsa inu. Tiziwona.
