Minister of Sports, Enock Chakufwa Chihana has called upon the general public and the corporate world in particular to come up with financial pledges to Flames as part of motivation to the
players ahead of the crucial encounter against the Super Eagles of Nigeria in the 2014 Brazil World Cup qualifying this Saturday at the Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.
“I am urging all Malawians to go to Kamuzu Stadium and support our team. As we all know that our team was in Kenya where they drew against Kenya which is not a bad result at all and we expect the team to do much better this Saturday against Nigeria,” Chihana told a local radio.
Malawi national football team, the Flames, stand-in captain, Moses ‘Luba’ Chavula has appealed to all soccer loving Malawians to rally behind the team, as they tussle with Nigeria’s Super Eagles on Saturday in the World Cup qualifiers match at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.
Chavula said with the vocal support from fans it encourages them to work more extra harder.
“Our plea to fans is to rally behind us even when we are trailing. We promise to deliver because a win will see us on the summit table in our group,” said defender.
Chavula also indicated that they were not shaken with the Super Eagles and vowed to make life tough for them.
Flames coach, Kinnah Phiri also shared Chavula’s sentiments describing Nigeria as a sleeping giant.
