Football Association of Malawi (FAM) General Secretary Suzgo Nyirenda described the match as crucial and a milestone to the Flames to achieve the first ever World Cup qualifying dream hence the need for thorough preparations.

According to Nyirenda, the funds are already available and has also revealed that a certain company will make a donation to Fam on top of the government funding and K50 Million from their sponsors Carsberg.

Nyirenda said the Flames are expected to fly to Tanzania on 4th October and the game is scheduled on 7th October.

The return leg will be played on 11th October at the Kamuzu Stadium which has just been certified fit to host the match by the world soccer governing body Fifa upon inspection.

The Flames risked playing the return leg away from home due to the recent poor condition of Kamuzu Stadium’s artificial turf.

Meanwhile, it is not yet known whether Flames technical panel headed by Ernest Mtawali will maintain the same squad that travelled to Swaziland or will bring in new faces.

Fam says it is confident that the Flames will win against Tanzania as the coaches were able to monitor the players during the game against Swaziland and were able to notice some weak areas.

Flames twice gave away lead to salvage a 2-2 draw against Swaziland in the 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifying match away in Swaziland.

“FAM says it is confident that the flames will win against Tanzania”,and the reasons have been given for their confidence..
My worry and question goes to the coach. What if you lose?
Do you think they will hear your excuse?
Remember, your records start with a draw.
