She-Flames leave for Kenya today

The Malawi National Women’s football team leaves for Nairobi, Kenya this afternoon for Sunday’s 2020 Olympics Women’s Qualifier second round return leg against the Harambe Starlets.

She Flames goes to Nairobi with a narrow advantage following their 3-2 victory in the first leg played at the jam-packed Kamuzu Stadium on Wednesday.

Sunday’s match will be played behind closed doors at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos, because the ground is not certified by FIFA to accommodate spectators.

During the previous game post-match interviews, She-Flames coach, Abel Mkandawire, said despite his side leading by a goal, he will approach the Sunday’s game with an attacking system rather than defending.

The team is travelling with 20 players including the two international Chawinga sisters, Tabitha and Temwa, who ply their trades in China and Sweden respectively.

Coach Mkandawire has maintained the squad which played during the first leg match at home ground.

The winner of the two-legged tie will play Gabon or Ghana in the third round.
