The Malawi National Football team the Flames will start camp on Monday, September 21, in preparation for the 2018 World Cup first-leg away match against slated for October 7 away in Dar es Salaam.
According to FAM general secretary Suzgo Nyirenda, the national football team squad will be named this Friday.
Flames’ head coach Ernest Mtawali and his assistant Nsanzurwimo Ramadhan have since presented a report on the recent away 2017 African Cup of Nations Cup qualifier against Swaziland’s Sihlangu Semnikati which ended in a two-all draw in Swaziland.
He added that before meeting Tanzania away, they have planned that the Flames should play a friendly match against either Uganda or Kenya.
“We have planned to have a friendly against an east African team before facing Tanzania in Dar es Salaam. However, that friendly will only comprise local-based players because foreign clubs will not let our professionals out on dates outside Fifa calendar,” Nyirenda said.
If the Flames succeed in the two-legged qualifiers against Tanzania, they will face Algeria in the next group L match at home on November 9.
