Malawi national women’s football team friendly game against Tanzania has been moved to Dar-es-Salaam to be played on November 7.
The friendly game was initially scheduled to take place on this Saturday at Civo Stadium but Tanzania Football Federation were advised to cancel it because of the impending Tanzania General Elections set for October 25.
But Football Association of Malawi (FAM) General Secretary Suzgo Nyirenda disclosed that their counterparts have instead proposed to have the game played away.
“It has pleased the Tanzania Football Federation to host the Malawi Women’s national football for a friendly match on 7th November in Dar-es-Salaam. This follows the cancellation of the match which was earlier scheduled for 24th October at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe,” Nyirenda said.
Meanwhile, FAM has called all players to resume camp training at Chiwembe Technical Centre on Monday ahead of the match.
The camping was postponed after FAM got the news that Tanzania will not be allowed to travel to Malawi for the friendly game.
“FAM has since warmly received and accepted the invitation and the ladies will resume camp training at Chiwembe Technical Centre on Monday 26th October in readiness of the said match.”
Former Civo United coach Thom Mkorongo is the head coach with women’s football legend Maggie Chombo Sadik as assistant coach.
The call up has sidelined experienced players such as Thanid Kasiya and the notable seasoned face is Linda Kasenda.
