Talent, Yes, Motivation, No. Malawi players have the talent and capability to play good football but they are highly demotivated to carry the Malawian Flag high. The players do not seem to appreciate the fact the wearing a Malawi jersey is more than kicking a football for 90 minutes its a matter of national pride, but how can they take pride in representing a nation whose Football association is not serious and does not treat them right or manage football affairs in a professional manner?
