Relief! Flames players free of Covid19 as Marinica tests positive again
However, the Football Association of Malawi has disclosed that Head of Technical Panel Mario Marinica has yet again tested positive.
Head of delegation Tiya Somba Banda said: “We are delighted that all the players have been cleared. We would like to thank our medical team for their effort and dedication in taking care of the team. We now have a full squad and look forward to Thursday’s training which will bring together the whole squad for the first time.
“It’s a timely boost so that we have all the players available for the Zimbabwe game which is a must win for us to remain in contention for a place in the knock-out stages.”
The Flames had 15 players only for their first game against Guinea on Monday which they lost 1-0 as six players tested positive for COVID-19 while two others were still in Saudi Arabia. FAM has also brought in five players who were on Reserve list to boost the squad.
