Malawi U-20 in post-mortem after Cosafa trip

Malawi Under 20 National Team Technical panel is expected to make a postmoterm and make recommendations towards their South African trip where they participated at Cosafa Youth Championship.

Gerald Phiri: Coach for Under 20

The team returned home on Wednesday after their unsuccessful trip-interms of results- in the rainbow nation.

The team started their campaign with a 0-0 draw against Zimbabwe before losing to Zambia 3-0 to finish second in Group B.

Zambia finished as Group B leaders after beating all their opponents.

In there last game, the Junior Flames lost 2-0 to DR Congo in a cross-over fixture to find a single team to progress to the Semifinals.

Speaking in an interview upon arrival, Assistant Coach Enos Chatama told Nyasa Times that personally he has learnt alot.

“I went there to learn and  I will keep on learning as you know this was my first trip as an Assistant Coach,” said Chatama.

Asked on what would be the way forward with the current squad they travelled with, Chatama opted to first meet with fellow technical panel to do a postmoterm.

“I can’t give advice now but we have to sit down with the head coach to make recommendations,” Chatama said.

There have been growing concerns from the football fraternity on how Football Association of Malawi (FAM) will maintain the junior teams.

But National Youth Football Association General Secretary Thoko Chimbali told a local radio that they have put up strong measures to make sure that they sustain the teams.

“We have developed a data base to make sure that we keep our players in their respective categories together,” said Chimbali.
