Malawi national women football team is expected to host Tanzania in a friendly match on October 24.
National Women Football Committee (NWFC) chairperson Severia Chalira said in an interview the actual venue in Lilongwe is yet to be decided.
She said the event will be used to prepare the team for the Confederation of Southern Africa Football Associations (Cosafa) Championships to be held in Seychelles next March.
“The Tanzanian national team is travelling to Zimbabwe for an international event and they will have a stopover in the country for the friendly match. The game will take place in Lilongwe because that is where they will board a plane to Zimbabwe,” she said.
Meanwhile, the recently appointed technical panel headed by coach Thom Mkorongo has started identifying talent from regional encounters of the Fifa/FAM Cup to build a squad for the imminent friendly match.
Last weekend, the technical panel witnessed the Southern Region finals of the FAM Cup at Chiwembe Technical Centre ground where Blantyre Zero beat Ntopwa Super Queens 1-0 to retain the cup. The third-placed match saw Dream’s United triumphing 1-0 over Prison Sisters.
This means the Mkorongo-led panel will be in Lilongwe to spot potential national team players during the Central Region finals between Skippers FC and DD Sunshine at Kamuzu Institute for Sports (KIS).
Then, they will proceed to the Northern Region finals in Mzuzu where Moyale Sisters will face Kwaito Sisters at Luwinga Technical Centre ground on October 7.
