Malawi: Phiri Releases Uder-20 Football Squad

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).

Phiri is hoping for an improved display from his boys, who last year, during a similar tournament held in South Africa, fired blanks after failing to score in four consecutive games.

"We have confidence in the squad. Football lovers should expect good results from the team," said Phiri.

Notable players in the squad are Levison Maganizo and Kondwani Mwaila of Silver Strikers, Be Forward Wanderers' Precious Sambani and Nyasa Big Bullets Mike Nkwate.
