Flames Shepolopolo Game On
LUSAKA: The morale is high and spirits suitable in the female flames camp as they take on Shepolopolo of Zambia this afternoon in Lusaka in the Africa Womens Championship.
This is the first leg to determine who between them proceeds to Zimbabwe for the finals.
In 2009 Shepolopolo beat the flames thus the Malawi girls would want to revenge. The game is particularly crucial for a number of reasons.
First, both teams are fighting for their maiden Africa Women’s Championship appearance. Shepolopolo and the flames are all close to Zimbabwe, the hosts of the eighth edition of the tournament.
Thus both teams would want to be there but only one has to progress beyond this stage putting considerable pressure on both sides of the aisle.
Zambia coach Enala Simbeya has a home advantage and being a free game most likely, Barclays stadium will be full.
But High Commissioner David Bandawe has hopes that Flames will go forward and has since organised Lusaka based Malawians to cheer the team this afternoon.
The flames first eleven has Chimwemwe Madise 1, Annia Lizi 2, Charity Chikondi Banda 8, Tisadane Bokosi 17, Chisomo Kazitsonga 4, Bridget Mkuzilire 5, Lina Chipili 13, Ringo Dyce Phiri 12, Sungeni Msiska 14, Linda Kasenda 10 and Tabitha Chabinga jersy number 11.
Jersy number 16 Thoko Mwase, 3 eliza Chiphang’ombe, 15, Chisomo Mickson, 6 Hannah Moses, 9 Violet Chihana, 7 Latiphar Malunjika and 18 Alice Msiska.
Coach Temwa Msuku and leader of delegation David Dube are all upbeat that this is a Malawi game.
On the other hand, team Doctor Hilda Phiri has certified the team is fit. So far no injuries have been reported.
But Shepolopolo coach Enala Simbeya has told Daily Mail that morale is high in her camp but she says, they are not underrating the Flames.
The second leg is scheduled for Chichiri stadium on January 28, 2012. - Zodiak Online
