Mwase Turns to Gor Mahia's Malisero
Flames coach Meck Mwase has given Kenya-based Andrew Malisero his maiden Flames call up ahead of Sunday's friendly match against Zimbabwe to be played behind closed doors at the Mpira Stadium.
He is a product of defunct Surestream Academy.
The 17, year-old just signed a three-year contract with Kenyan giants Gor Mahia in September from African Warriors of South Africa.
The former Under 20 international, who plays for Gor Mahia, said he has always wanted to represent the country at the highest level.
"It's such an honor to play for Malawi because it gives you an opportunity to show what you are capable of. When I received the call, I couldn't believe that my dream has now come to reality.
"I will do whatever it takes to cement my position in the team. I remember when I was young, I used to cheer the likes of Gabadinho Mhango, John Banda, Chimango Kayira and many more others and playing with them in the same team is something very special," he explained.
On signing for the Kenyan side, the former Surestream Academy product said: "It's a big step in my career. Gor Mahia are Kenyan giants and I will do whatever it takes to make the fans and the management happy. I am adapting to a new life in Kenya and hopefully, I will settle in very quickly," he concluded.
Malawi lost to neighbors Zambia on Wednesday at Heroes Stadium for the second time this year by the same 1-0 margin after a rather disjointed performance.
They will be looking to bounce back when they face Zimbabwe on Sunday ahead of their back-to-back matches in November against Burkina Faso in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
