Flames forward Gabadinho given ‘benefit of doubt’ for Algeria game

BLANTYRE (Maravipost)–Flames coach Young Chimodzi has justified Frank ‘Gabadinho’ Mhango’s inclusion in the senior team ahead of 2015 Afcon Group B encounter against Algeria.

Some soccer pundits queried why Mhango and Mozambique based forward Chiukepo Msowoya were included when they are struggling both at club level and national level.

But Chimodzi, who called nine foreign based players for the encounter, argued that it could not be fair to drop a player based on performance in one or two games.

“We do not just call these players. We analyse their most recent performance and Gabadinho and Chiukepo were some of the names that were discussed at length.

“They still have to been given the benefit of doubt for the Algeria game,” said Chimodzi.

He also noted that the two players can perform without necessary registering their names on the score sheet.

Chimodzi, however, said Gabadinho and Chiukepo need counselling other than giving them the cold shoulder.

All nine foreign based players were expected to arrive Monday

They are defenders Harry Nyirenda and Limbikani Mzava, midfielders Joseph Kamwendo, Chimango Kayira, Robert Ng’ambi and Robin Ngalande; and strikers Msowoya, Gabadinho and Atusaye Nyondo.

Meanwhile, Football Association of Malawi (Fam) announced that Flames new Umbro kit and replica jerseys will be Tuesday at College of Medicine in Blantyre.

The replica jerseys are expected to on sale from Wednesday ahead of Saturday’s Afcon match against Algeria.

Prices for the replica jerseys will be known at launching ceremony where Flames players, Flames official sponsor Carlsberg Malawi, government officials and other corporate sponsors will be in attendance.
