Thumbs up for our Flames Coach for such wonderful openings for our young and talented players.

I would love even if you facilitate trials for Second League sides in Belgium and other European Countries.

May God bless you as you assist our players

That’s the way to go. RVG is right on this despite the fact that I doubted his capabilities. I think the problem with the Malawi national team has been the using of players that were recycled and who were not exposed to European football.. Belgium is a very good foundation for top level football in Europe. This is why many top English clubs send players to Belgium first to develop after signing them in Africa.They go and play in England as refined products from Belgium.
