The Flames will this afternoon fly out to Dar es Salaam for Sunday’s International friendly match against Tanzania without head coach Meck Mwase.
Mwase tested positive to COVID-19 alongside his assistant Lovemore Fazili and defender Peter Cholopi.
They are all asymptomatic and have since gone into isolation.
In the absence of Mwase and Fazili, assistant coach Bob Mpinganjira will take charge of the team.
Mwase and his panel have named a 22-man squad with Be- Forward Wanderers midfielder Vitumbiko Kumwenda, Nyasa Big Bullets defender Eric Kaonga and Scotland based defender Kieran Ngwenya making their first trip with the Flames.
