Malawi is tomorrow starting a country-wide talent identification exercise, to select players for the Under-17 national football team.
This comes as the country is preparing for the 2021 and 2022 COSAFA Championships.
The exercise will be undertaken by the Football Association of Malawi-FAM in conjunction with the National Youth Football Association-NYFA and the Malawi Schools Sports Association-MASSA.
District coaches, NYFA coaches as well as officials from MASSA will be handling the district cluster phase.
The Junior Flames are expected to compete at this year’s COSAFA U-17 tournament which will be played as part of the Region 5 Games later this year in Lesotho.
The team is then expected to host the 2022 Region 5 games which will be used as a test for the 2023 AFCON Youth Qualifiers.
