Malawi national team players have commended Football Association of Malawi for securing the training camp in Morocco where they played two games against hosts on Friday and Togo on Monday.
The Flames wasted a chance to win against Morocco when they were forced to a one-all draw in the closing stages of the game. But winded up on a positive note by beating Togo 1-0 on Monday.
Mozambique based professional Christopher John Banda applauded FAM and the organising committee saying it was a good experience.
“We are happy that we won and we thank FAM for organising the friendlies. We have learnt a lot,” Banda said.
“Everybody is happy with the win including the coach but he told us that there is room for improvement,” he added.
The goal was scored by Richard Mbulo from a corner kick taken by freekick specialist Gerald Phiri Jr in the 14 the minute.
He also clarified that South Africa based professional Gabadinho Mhango was not red carded instead it was assistant coach Peter Mponda who was shown marching orders.
“Gaba was not red carded. It’s (Peter) Mponda who was red carded for protesting a referee’s decision.”
The win was Malawi’s second under the tutelage of Belgian expatriate Ronny Van Geneugden. Meanwhile the 35-member delegation led by Fam executive member Daud Ntanthiko is expected to return on Thursday.
Morocco paid all the expenses for Malawi alongside other participants Kenya, Mauritania Niger and Togo who were also invited during the international Fifa break.
The squad which secured the second win under RVG: Charles Swisi, Stanley Sanudi, Limbikani Mzava, Dennis Chembezi (Peter Cholopi), Dalitso Sailesi, (Gomegzani Chirwa), Gerald Phiri, Robert Ng’ambi, Gabadinho Mhango (Christopher John Banda) Richard MbuluFollow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
