Mwase tell flames not to be complacent over win


The Malawi national football team interim coach Meke Mwase has asked his boys not to be carried away after winning against Seychelles in their first game at the COSAFA tournament on Sunday.

Speaking ahead of their second game of the tournament against Namibian on Tuesday afternoon Mwase said his boys will have to work hard for a win and have worked on some mistakes the team made despite winning the first game.

“We will be facing Namibia this afternoon which is equally a good team and with how we played against Seychelles on Sunday it’s promising that the boys want to do better at this tournament and will have to work hard again this afternoon.

“Yes we won the first game but we had more scoring chances which the boys didn’t utilise and still there were some mistakes the team made and we have talked to the boys and tried to rectify them if we are to do better at this tournament.

“Continuity is needed in the game of football as its not easy changing a winning team but after finalising the preparations ahead of this game we have to sit down as the technical panel anddeploy a good game plan for Namibia “, he said.

Meke Mwase further said that the team is aware that a win will increase their chances of progressing to the quarter finals.

“We have told the boys to put behind their back that we won the match against Seychelles and we focus on the Namibia game and everyone is aware that a win this afternoon will increase our chances of progressing in this tournament “, Mwase said.

Malawi and Namibia are tied on three points but the flames top the group with a better goals difference and the winner of group B will face Zambia in the quarter Finals.
