Coach Abel Mkandawire said the team need good prepations for the tournament.
“We are in tough group but we have quality players, we just need to prepare well,” said Mkandawire.
The senior championships will be staged in South Africa’s Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality from July 31-August 11, while the Under-20 tournament will run in the same city from August 1-11.
The 12 teams are grouped into three groups and will play each other in a round-robin format. The top team in each pool will advance to the semi-finals, along with the best-placed runner-up, after which the competition reverts to a straight knockout format.
