Malawi national football team coach Meke Mwase says he is happy that they have been given a go-ahead to regroup and start preparations ahead of the 2020 Council of Southern Africa Football Association (COSAFA) tournament to be played in South Africa later next month.
On Thursday, the presidential task force on covid-19 led by chairman Dr John Phuka cleared the flames to resume training but the task force is yet to allow the domestic league to resume action as they weigh options on when and how it will kick-off.
According to Mwase, the flames need to regroup and participate in this year’s COSAFA tournament to help his boys regain fitness after staying for a long time without playing football.
“It is a good thing that government has allowed the football national team to resume training ahead of the cosafa tournament. As you know that we have stayed for more than six months without playing football due to coronavirus, the forthcoming cosafa tournament will be used as a preparatory ground for the team ahead of the coming African cup of nations (AFCON) and world cup qualifiers,” he said.
The flames have crucial back to back group B AFCON qualifier match against Burkina Faso in November this year.
