for Cameroon are high comparing to Malawi.

Kkkkk osamaphwekesa malawi izachita bwino ngati kuli zaka 50 kusogoloku kamazi azasiye kaye udindo


Please FAM consider under 17 national team by giving them a lot of friendly games, these small boys need to be together now and then to have a good combination. That’s the only way we can build a good national team that Malawi can be once again happy for it.
Even if they can play with one of the super leg teams once after two months under one good coach, that will be still fine for them.

cool boy
