These girls need the encouragement of all of us Malawians. They have got the first positive result, they can get another one. Let us shower them with words of encouragement now rather than leave them alone and criticize them when they don’t do well.

This team should play Morocco in the return leg. Amuna aja samatha, mankhwala too much.
Fire the white man and hire Maggie Chombo as flames coach
