The ‘shames’: Malawi crash out of Cosafa Cup

Malawi national football team, the Flames, have crashed out of the 2017 edition of the Cosafa Castle Cup  after grinding to a barren draw with Mauritius on Tuesday following their opening 02 defeat to guest participants Tanzania’s Taifa Stars.

Malawi players fail to win after two games

The draw on Tuesday confirmed Malawi at the basement of Group A  as Mauritius have a better goal difference following their 0-1 loss to Angola on Sunday.

The only chance for  Malawi qualifying for the quarter-finals would be mathematical and very remove or impossible. The team has been eliminated after two games and need to pack their bags heading home empty handed.

The Tuesday draw ended Malawi involvement.

Malawians are used of this shame of their national team. No big deal and no surprises.

Coach Ronny van Geneugden (RVG) reshuffled his line-up but that did not help matters.

Speaking after the match on live broadcasting through Times Radio, Assistant coach Gerald Phiri Snr said: “We have made out lives difficult for not winning today.”

Phiri said the players were impressive.

“We were impressed with the performance of our players, they have improved but football is about goals,” said Phiri.

Phiri thinks the tournament will be important for the development of their young players.

That’s why it takes more time for goverment to fund the sports council because of this bad performance by our prayers, in the past you use to blame kinner phiri, now is their turn , is better to support our netball team and give them adequate finance. Every time apologies please stop this nosense,

I love Malawi

Mbowe,you’re calling people stupid because they have a different opinion as to tour’s?That’s wrong man,everyone is entitled to their opinions whether positive or negative. The truth of the matter is that,this so called our national team is not ready to compete internationally.let’s use the money they get on other things like,increasing the constituency development fund allocation so that we can have some gravel roads not these mud roads we’re having now.please!!!!!!!!


I am very impressed with the performance Malawi played, that’s what football is all about and the good thing is we have young players that will take us far.
For those who doesn’t know football they call it as a shame but for me I enjoyed the game and I hope in one year time we will have a strong team to be proud of, I was only ashamed with a player akukanika kuyakhula English after being a man of the match otherwise it was a nice passing game.


I agree with Gerald Phiri in a year time we will have a every good team only stupid people can coment negatively for the team give them time before
