Malawi fall 1-0 in Liberia
Malawi's Flames coach Kinnah Phiri was left fuming over the lamentable match fitness of his foreign based legion following a 1-0 loss in Liberia on Tuesday night.

Home based players dominated the squad but the coach's concerns was on the foreign legion comprising Atusaye Nyondo (SuperSport United), Robert Ng'ambi (Platinum Stars), Peter Wadabwa, Jimmy Zakazaka (both Thanda Royal Zulu), Simplex Nthala (Vilankulo FC, Mozambique), James Sangala (Benfica de Luanda, Angola) and Limbikani Mzava (Bloemfontein Celtic).
Malawi full squad: Simplex Nthala, James Sangala, Pilira Makupe, Moses Chavula, Limbikani Mzava, Dave Banda, Chimango Kaira, Peter Wadabwa (Jimmy Zakazaka), Joseph Kamwendo (Robert Ng'ambi), Frank Banda, Atusaye Nyondo (Gabadinho Mhango).
