Malawi U-23 stumble with Zambia’s Fashion: Promise fire in second leg

Malawi Under- 23 national football team coach Meke Mwase said said his charges  made things difficult for themselves when they conceded a goal at Kamuzu Stadium on Wednesday after losing 0-1 but promised to come out strong in the second leg in Lusaka  on Sunday.

Zambia beat Malawi to carry advantage into second leg

Despite the loss, the junior Flames gave the homa fans hope  on a rainy day with some flashes of good football and the  for a place at Egpyt 2019 Africa Cup of Nations final could still be  there.

Malawi  threatened early Peter Banda missed a close range in a one on one situation.

The first half was not as impressive as fans expected, Zambia’s best chance came a minute to half time but Klings Kangwa had his shot blocked.

Malawi conceded late in the game in the 76th minute when Belgium-based sensational striker Fashion Sakala headed into the net.

“We will go to Zambia with the hope to turn the tables. It’s mission possible, this is football. Not over until it is over,” said  Mwase after the match.

“We are down but not out,” he stressed.

Zambia’s coach Beston Chembeshi said he expects an open game in the second leg.

“We expect Malawi to come with an attacking game. But we will be ready for them,” he said in post match interview.

I have a very humble request. I have noted with great awe the innovation and drive the new Bullets coach has in handling that team.

My request is for him to be made Malawi national team coach, he has the qualities to take any team far. He has been bleased with a gift many do not have.

I am tired, exhausted of alway being the lossing team. I love my country, and so do you.

Inu don’t give us unnecessary hope. Nothing good can come out of this country as long as DPP is in control. Tell me anything internationally recognizable which has happened in the past 4 + years… Only sadness. Nothing to be proud of this country. Just sell this Malawi to potential investors

There is more to be done in Malawi football. Just look at the physical structure of the Zambian players can our stunted growth players match them?
