 Malawi women’s national football seals second round Tokyo 2020 Olympics qualifiers

The victorious Malawi women football team  arrived  in the  afternoon through  Chileka Airport after booting out Mozambique  through on a 14-1 aggregate following their 11-1 triumph in the first leg at home last Thursday.

The team’s Coach Abel Mkandawire said he is happy that his subjects followed  instructions and managed to win both games convincingly.

“We have a very brilliant squad with depth . What we need now are early preparations for the tie against Kenya.

“We would like to ask the authorities to ensure they arrange international friendly games to give the girls more international exposure”, he said.

Striker Temwa Chawinga,  who is currently the top goal scorer in the African qualifiers with  6 goals,  says the team has what it takes to make it to the Olympics next year.

“As a striker, my job is to score as many goals as possible. Our team has very talented players and all of us are hardworking. Above all, we listen to our coaches and I believe that with God on our side, we will make it”, said Chawinga.

Malawi will meet Kenya – Kenya who boast of six overseas-based professionals – in the next round with the first game at home on 26th August and the return leg away on 1st September 2019.
