Nyasa Big Bullets Saturday afternoon crashed Might Be Forward wanderers 2-0 in the Football Association of Malawi (FAM) Charity Shield which played at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe.
Chiukepo Msowoya and Muhamed Sulumba kept Bullets in singing mood this day. The mood motivated within a minute when game started, where Sulumba capitalized on a defensive blunder and scored first goal.
The mood of Bullets triggered again, where shots were firing from all angles, catching the Wanderers’ defence of Steward Gerald, Kondwani Kadzuwa, Stanly Sanudi and Francis Mlimbika off-guard. It was on envious note that Bullets would grab second chance. Before, the end of the same first half, Msowoya headed in a cross from Dalitso Sailesi from close range.
Smelling the rat, Wanderers coach, Jack Chamangwana made several substations to no avail. However, the substitution the coach made, after Amos Bello, the Nigerian player-striker, and peter Wadabwa, the atmosphere of wanderers changed to better.
“Conceding an early goal against our rivals made life difficult for us but making some changes, we were an improved side in the second half. That was just a warm up match and it has helped us to see who can fit in and who cannot,” Said Chamangwana.
The FAM and Malawi Blood Transfusion (MBTS) used the inaugural Chifundo Charity Shield to mobilize the public to donate blood.
This collected blood should go to Kamuzu Central Hospital where there is a need to give blood to many patients
The MBTS chief executive officer Natasha Nsamala thanked FAM for the initiative saying it will take the lion’s share in their target of collecting 80 000 units of blood this year.
