Flames coach Ronny Van Geneugden has called into camp Azam Tigers goalkeeper Willam Thole for a special goalies training session.
Thole is the only addition to the Flames squad that is preparing for Cosafa Cup to be held this month in South Africa.
“He [Thole] is a good goalkeeper. Young, talented; so I felt he has to be with the other goalkeepers in camp to learn as well,” he said.
Thole’s inclusion brings the number of goalkeepers in Flames camp to five.
The others are Silver Strikers’ Brighton Munthali, Nyasa Big Bullets’ Ernest Kakhobwe, Kamuzu Barracks’ Lehman Nthala and Mbeya City’s Owen Chaima. They are being trained by Swadik Sanudi.
HB Songo goalkeeper Charles Swini was expected to fly to Mozambique on Wednesday after his club recalled him and team mate Frank Banda.
FAM has not set targets for RVG, but the coach on Wednesday said he wants to go as far as possible.
“We will play to qualify for the semi-final then from there will see how far we can go,” he said.
Malawi national football team and guests Tanzania will play the opening game of the 2017 Cosafa Cup at Moruleng Stadium on June 25.
