It is almost a full contingent now as many professional Flames players have reported for training in the country in preparation for the forthcoming World cup qualifiers against Namibia and Kenya slated for Wednesday at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.
First to arrive last week were two South African based Robin Ngalande and Limbikani Mzava before Esau ‘Black Mamba’ Kanyenda who was followed by Robert Ngambi, Harry Nyirenda and Atusaye Nyondo.
On Wednesday, Mozambican based duo Chiukepo Msowoya and Moses Chavula jetted-in while James Sangala and Joseph Kamwendo are the only remaining professionals to make it a full squad.
On his arrival, Polokwane City hit-man Esau Kanyenda said he is ready for the battle and urged the nation to converge at Kamuzu Stadium in large numbers.
“I’m ready for the battle because if we win against Namibia, our chances to qualify for the World Cup will be brighter. All what we can urge our fans is to give us support on Wednesday,” said Kanyenda.
Chipping in was Black Leopards defender, Harry Nyirenda, who vowed to do what it takes to stop the Brave Warriors from kissing the back of the Flames net.
Nyirenda said if they would secure victory against Namibia then they will have a simple job in their next game against Kenya which is on June 12.
“With the massive support from our fans at Kamuzu Stadium, l have no doubt that we will continue where we had left in the first leg and manage to beat them,” said Nyirenda.
South African player of the moment, Robert Ngambi hinted that come rain or sunshine Flames will win, saying anything is possible with the vocal local support.
“We have faith in our fans that have always been there and we ask them that come Wednesday they should rally behind us because we are ready to deliver,” said Ngambi.--Malawi News Agency
