Wister Phiri makes case as Blue Eagles beat Moyale in pre-season friendly

Police side Blue Eagles demonstrated why they could be one of the favorite teams to lift the TNM Super League with a 2-0 convincing win over Moyale Barracks in a Saturday pre-season friendly match played in front of a small crowd at Mzuzu Stadium.

The Nankhaka based side made a spanking start to the game by dominating ball possession which yielded fruit in the 6th minute after kick-off when Junior Malidadi’s shot from a well-constructed move involving five Eagles players was deflected into the back of the net, stunning the home crowd into silence.

Former Fomboni FC talisman, Wister Phiri, despite showing off some neat touches, wasted few opportunities to double the away side’s lead in the first half.

However, the Lions of Kaning’ina introduced new faces in the second half, including well-established players like Robert Simkonda, to breathe life into Moyale’s attack. This helped them to start the second half on high tempo by attacking frequently, creating chance after chance, but they were unable to unlock the well drilled Eagles’ defence.

The soldiers were punished for missing opportunities in the 75th minute when Charles Ngosi finished calmly following a nice move down the left side to seal the victory for the Area 30 based side.

After the match, Blue Eagles tactician, Deklerk Msakakuona, said despite arriving in the city for the game late, he was happy with his side’s performance.

“I believe we will have a stronger team than we had last season. As you can see, we out-played Moyale without our three best players John Banda, Mesium Mhone and Schumaker Kuwali who are on National duty with the flames,” he said.

However, Moyale Barracks coach Nicholas Mhango, played down the significance of the defeat against one of their closest rivals in TNM Super League, describing the game as a training session.

“People should not lead much into today’s results. We have three weeks to prepare for the forthcoming league [TNM] and we will get it right. We have biffed up our squad with three new faces from our youth side to improve the team,” he said.
