The junior Flames left Belgium on Sunday and arrived in Egypt on Monday.

In Belgium, the junior Flames played six training matches in total; lost two, won two and drew two.

Leader of the Malawi delegation, Rashid Mtelera, has described the team’s two week stay in Belgium as a success as the team prepares to meet Zambia Under 23 on March 20, 2019.

“I think we have achieved what we went to Belgium for. This was a training tour. We were given a decent training ground. We are thankful to clubs that offered to play against us. Only one club failed to make it. Some players have been given decent football boots. I think the technical panel now knows what to do,” explained Mtelera.

Assistant coach, Peter Mponda, has echoed Mtelera’s sentiments adding that the exposure given to the junior flames has given a huge boost to both the players and coaches.

“As coaches we have learnt a number of things. We assessed the player’s strengths as well as weaknesses. There is a lot of room for improvement. We hope to have a good game against Egypt on Friday before meeting Zambia. I am sure the players themselves have learnt so many things from this tour,” Mponda told a local radio station.
