Blantyre — Malawi under 20 national football team Coach, Gerald Phiri senior, has gone for experience in his squad selection this time around.
The Junior Flames are preparing for the Cosafa Youth Championship scheduled for Zambia in December, 2017.
According to a statement which Football Association of Malawi (FAM) released on Monday, the junior Flames are scheduled to start training at Mpira Village in Blantyre Monday (November 13, 2017).
