Malawi will play Liberia on September 5 before flying to Accra, Ghana where they will face the Black Stars on September 15 in the African Nations Cup fixture.
Football Association of Malawi (FAM) president Walter Nyamilandu confirmed the news on Wednesday and described it as good tidings.
“It is true that we are playing Liberia. The team will camp in Liberia before flying to Ghana. The Liberian Football Association has agreed to meet costs of accommodation, food and internal travel for the Flames. All we have to do is to pay for return air tickets for the team,” said Nyamilandu.
Flames coach Kinnah Phiri was ecstatic with the news and has commended FAM for securing the friendly.
“We had a meeting with FAM on Monday and they relayed the news to us. It shows FAM is really concerned about the success of the national football team. This is great news for us. We will be in Liberia for six or seven days with both local and professional players. This is enough time for the players to gel,” said Kinnah.
He said Liberia are a good side and will give the Flames real test of their capabilities before the Ghana game.
