Malawi national under 20 coach Ernest Mtawali said his team is ready to take on Zambia on Saturday at Kamuzu Stadium in the first leg of the Senegal 2015 Africa Youth Championship.
Beaming with confidence after a training session at Kamuzu Stadium, Mtawali said they had good preparations for the match.
“So far so good. We have no injuries and my boys are more than ready to take on Zambia. We are aware that it will be a tough match but at the end of 90 minutes we want to carry the day,” said Mtawali.
The former Flames legend also urged Malawians to drum up support to the junior Flames come Saturday at the stadium.
Before training, players like Chawanangwa Kawonga, Dalitso Sailesi, Abraham Kamwendo, Issac Kaliat looked more confident and ready to scorch Zambia.
Meanwhile, the Zambian under 20 arrived in Blantyre on Wednesday with coach Hector Chilombo naming an 18 man squad which excludes Lubambo Musonda and defender Benedict Chepeshi, who is nursing an injury.
The winners between the two teams after the second leg in Lusaka will qualify for the African Youth Championship finals in Senegal next year.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
