Malawi FA President Walter Nyamirandu confirms that the players have agreed to train and will take on Harambee Stars after an agreement was reached
Malawi will play in their Wednesday’s make-or-break 2014 World Cup qualifier against Kenya’s Harambee Stars after ending their Tuesday strike over unpaid allowances.
Malawi FA President Walter Nyamirandu said the players had agreed to train and play after an agreement was reached.
“We agreed that their grievances will be resolved,” Nyamirandu told Nyasa Times.
“We talked to the players to put country first.” Head coach Eddington Ng’onamo also confirmed the developments.
Malawi players boycotted training on Tuesday and threatened not to honour their match against Kenya over unpaid allowances.
Skipper for the Flames side Joseph Kamwendo said the players are now focused for the match. “We know the game against Kenya is a must win and we will fight to earn a win.”
