Football Association of Malawi (FAM) is courting their Moroccan counterparts for a possible international friendly match against the Atlas Lions next month.
FAM president Walter Nyamilandu yesterday confirmed the development.
He said the friendly match would be part of preparations for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifier against Zimbabwe’s Warriors on June 4 in Harare.
Flames coach Ernest Mtawali said the away friendly would help them tune-up for the Zimbabwe game.
“Morocco are currently one of the strongest teams on the continent and these are the teams we should be playing if we are to improve and expose the up-and-coming players.
“I am hoping that it will work out,” he said.
Morocco became the first team to qualify for 2017 Afcon even with the luxury of two games to play.
In a related development, the draw for the 2016 Cosafa Cup has been postponed to Thursday.
Malawi is expected to participate in the tournament scheduled for June 11-22 in Namibia.
