Malawi national football team preparations for the 2021 African cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers has suffered a major setback as some players have sustained injuries.

Last Friday, Flames coach Meke Mwase released from camp all players to be with their teams in the TNM super league as well as in the FISD cup.

Speaking in an interview flames team manager James Sangala said they are working hard to put everything in order.

“Some players like Charles Petro, Precious Sambani, Denis Chembezi, Lugano Kayila and Bonnie Chilweya have failed to report to camp due to injuries.

It’s a big set back as they might have been in the plans of the coach ahead of the two games. But we are working tirelessly to find replacements so that we feature a strong side”, Sangala said.

Sangala further said the foreign based players are expected in camp on 11th November.

“The coach has called six foreign based players who are expected in camp on 11th this month except for Yamikani Chester who is already in the country. He should join camp any day from now”, he said.

The Flames are to play South Sudan on the 13th at the Kamuzu stadium before facing Uganda away on the 17th of November.
