Maduka on Malawi’s showing


The Flames will return home to Blantyre with their tails down after being beaten 3-0 by the South Africans.

Maduka said even though the scoreline was embarrassing, the performance of his countrymen on the field was very encouraging.

“I think it was a very good game, played with lots of pace. It looked bad on the score board at the end of the game but the performance inside the field of play was satisfying although we conceded silly goals.

“Despite the absence of senior players like Jimmy Zakazaka and Fischer Kondowe, I was also very happy to see Malawi fielding a number of youngsters which, for me, is very important especially if we are to build a strong team for future.”

Maduka who retired from international football a few years ago is set to miss Phunya Sele Sele’s Absa Premiership game against Ajax Cape Town at Athlone Stadium tonight due to an ankle injury.

“I picked up the injury during a friendly game recently hence I missed the game against Maritzburg United last weekend. But I am hopeful that I will be back at training next week,” he adds.
