Malawi national team and Platinum Stars international midfielder Robert Ng’ambi on Sunday helped his side to grab the second three points in the new league season as his side beat Jomo Cosmos 2-1 at the Olen Park Stadium.
Stars hanged on and managed to collect full maximum three points despite playing with ten men for about 50 minutes following a first half straight red card flashed to Ndumiso Mabena.
Ng’ambi scored the first goal twelve minutes into the first half before Eleanor Rodgers increased the tally of goals in the 31st minute to put the game beyond Cosmos reach in the first half.
In the second half, Cosmos tried their best to come back into the game but their efforts were not enough as they only managed to pull back only a one goal in the 73rd minute.
Ng’ambi’s impressive performance comes barely after a week since he was shunned by his national team coach Ernest Mtawali.
The skilful midfielder was left warming the Flames bench during the entire 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifying match against Swaziland away in Swaziland which ended 2-2.
The development has brought mist as the player openly expressed his disappointment towards Mtawali’s action.
Meanwhile, local soccer experts have called upon the Flames coach to spare sometime and sit down with Ng’ambi to resolve their differences for the good of the Flames.
Flames next fixture is a World Cup qualifying encounter against Tanzania away next month.
