Mozambique’s Grupo Desportivo da Hidroeléctrica de Cahora Bassa is expected to come to Malawi and play three strength testing matches against TNM Super League sides during their week-long tour.
The club will tour Malawi for the second time at the invitation of Blantyre United and will also play Envirom and Mighty Wanderers.
The Mocambola club, also referred to as HCB Songo, will start with a game against their hosts on Blantyre United Sunday at Kamuzu Stadium, Mighty Wanderers on Tuesday before wrapping up the trip with a game against newly promoted Super League side Envirom FC on Wednesday at Kamuzu Stadium.
Blantyre United Technical Director Lawson Nakoma said all the logistics for the three friendly games were in place.
The Mozambique national league side, based in hydro electric power dam town of Songo in Tete Province, is expected to arrive in the country today for the three games.
Nakoma said the club would be accommodated at Gold Card Lodge in Blantyre and will train at College of Medicine Sports Complex.
“We have also approached the other clubs as per your request and would like to advise that there is a slight change in the programme due to the league games which have been fixed this weekend.
“We can’t have them postponed as our football calendar is so tight. We have tried our best to accommodate your request,” Nakoma stared in a letter addressed to HCB official Wilfred Mpisa.
The club that has Malawian player Gerard Nkungula, also visited the country two years ago.
The club’s visit follows a request for friendly games which the Mozambican club sent to Blantyre United.
Super League of Malawi (Sulom) General Secretary Williams Banda confirmed having received communication from Blantyre United and the Mozambique side on the friendly games.
Blantyre United, who finished fourth last season, have not been that impressive in the TNM Super League 2013 season.
They have struggled in the first eight weeks of the season collecting eight points from eight games having won two, drawn two and lost four.
The international friendly is expected to help the team tune up for the league championship as they have been struggling.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
