Has anyone got some info about Saturday match of Malawi against Lesotho? The fact is confirmed by four towards each other independent sources (FIFA among them) but there is no single trace in Malawi media. Did the match really deserve to be considered official? The Nyasa Times mentions the match vs. Rwanda on 31 May as "the only warm up before Burkina Faso" for instance. And I'm interested for what was half-time score above all if the match really took place.
Te CEO said the team would give the Flames a right measure ahead of the sink or swim game against the Burkinabes on June 6.
He also disclosed that the friendly game against Lesotho would still be played at Kamuzu Stadium on May 23.
“The Flames will play two strength testing matches ahead of the World Cup qualifier. We hope this is enough for the national team who have often complained of lack of strength testing matches,” he said.
The news of the friendly game against the West African side was a relief to coach Kinnah Phiri who was reluctant to play Lesotho.
“I am satisfied with the arrangement. The two games are enough for us to fine-tune ahead of the qualifier.
“Initially, my fear was that playing Lesotho would not help us at all. But since we will also play another friendly against the West African side that’s even much better,” he said.
I have not found any match report from this match in Malawi media.
