The flames local based players on Sunday evening regrouped at the Mpira Village in Blantyre to star preparation for next month’s 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Liberia and Tunisia.
According to FAM Competitions and Communications director Gomezgani Zakazaka, said 16 local based-players have been called for camping.
“The technical panel will be working with the players for three days between Monday and Wednesday and then release them for club assignments. This will be done for two weeks and during the final week the team will assemble to travel to Liberia.
