The team which flew out to Belgium last Saturday for a two week long training camp is expected to play seven training matches with numerous top Belgian teams before flying out to Egypt on 3rd March for another friendly match against Egypt U-23 national team on 8th March.

The team will return home on 9th March ahead of Zambia matches in the Afcon qualifier matches on 20th March at home and and later a return leg on 26th away in Lusaka, Zambia.

Head Coach Mecke Mwase said before departure that the trip will give him a good platform to prepare his team against an experienced Zambian team.

This is the best ever news for Malawian football, win or lose, this is all part of training and learning new things in football; so we should avoid posting negative comments about the team. The boys are playing the best teams in the game and in the World. Belgium is right now a top team in the World. This is a good platform for our players to shine and i just hope and pray that about 6-8 players should clinch deals there for the future of our team.

Are they playing Belgium? or a Belgium Football club? To me it was bad to play two sets in one game.
