Zambia’s 2019 U23 AFCON qualifier opponents Malawi complete their three-week overseas training camp this weekend with an away friendly date against Egypt.

Malawi has been in Belgium for the last fortnight where they played six friendly games.

Malawi landed in Egypt on March 4 and will face the 2019 U23 AFCON hosts on March 8 before heading back home for final preparations.

The Young Flames won two, drew two and lost two matches during their fourteen day training camp in Belgium.

Meanwhile, Zambia, who have held weekly training camps in Lusaka for the last five weeks, will head to Johannesburg this week for a ten-day camp in transit to Blantyre for their March 20 first leg date.

A friendly against eSwatini is on the cards next week while South Africa.

Zambia and Malawi will meet in the final leg on March 24 in Lusaka with the winner over both legs advancing to the final qualifying stage in June to play Burundi or Congo-Brazzaville.

The top three finishers at this November’s tournament in Egypt will qualify to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

  1. FAZ is still working on players who can “fix” the match with beta betting.
    Mwamelo should be watched carefully.

  2. This is a wake up call for the Zambia under 23 national team. Your opponents are already in serious preparations but you have not played even a single friendly match. Even when you know that some of the players called to the national team have had no international exposure. Please coaches organize more friendly games for the boys and I am glad to hear that you will be heading for South Africa. No excesses this time around we have suffered enough shame for failing to qualify for the AFCON two times in a roll. I hope selection of players has been on merit and we want Zambia to parade its best talent this time around. No draw no lose we shall accept nothing short of victory

    • Just let Malawi go through. We will be an embarrassment if we qualify with our current poor Kamanga soccer

  4. Since Andrew Ndanga Kamanga took charge of FAZ, there’s no team that has had quality friendly games before a crucial match. Will we ever play Mexico, Brazil? etc. Kamanga is going , bye bye and never come back ever again!
