Malawi National Football Team Coach Meck Mwase has named a 23 man local based players squad for the upcoming two legged 2021 AFCON qualifier fixtures against Burkina Faso next month.

This is the Flames squad of the qualifiers this year as a result of AFCON games in March being cancelled against the milieu of the coronavirus pandemic.

Goalkeeper Rabson Chiyenda has been excluded, despite the announcement by his club last week that the shot stopper had tested negative for coronavirus.

Earlier this month, Chiyenda tested positive for Covid-19, a development that forced him to miss the Malawi Men’s Senior National Football team international friendlies against Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Defenders Paul Ndlobvu of MAFCO, Nixon Mwase of CIVO Sporting and Lusekelo Malema of Karonga United, Moyale Barracks midfielder Lloyd Njaliwa and Silver Strikers forward Stain Dave are the new faces in the squad.

Mwase will name the list of foreign based players on Friday October 31, 2020 to join their colleagues who will go into camp this coming Sunday at the Malawi Sun Hotel in Blantyre, Football Association of Malawi said in a statement.

Flames will face Burkina Faso’s Stallions away in Ougadudugu on Thursday November 12, 2020 before hosting them in Blantyre four days later.
