Tanzania/Malawi: Malawi Gather for Tanzania Friendly

Malawi's local players on Tuesday afternoon started training in preparation for next week's international friendly match against Tanzania.

The Flames regrouped and underwent Covid-19 and physical fitness tests. All players tested negative for COVID-19.

All the local players have reported for camp except goalkeeper Ernest Kakhobwe, who is undergoing medical assessment, while defender Eric Kaonga, who has replaced injured Precious Sambani, will join the team on Wednesday.

"We are expecting the two to join us on Wednesday. All the boys are fit according to the physical fitness tests that we have had today. This game is very important to us because we want to see which areas we need to work on as we are preparing for the World Cup matches," said coach Meck Mwase.

Foreign-based players will start arriving on Thursday.

Malawi will face Tanzania at the Benjamin Mkapa Stadium in Dar es Salaam on Sunday, June 13.
