Friendly Malawi should not worry despite humiliating Kenya defeat – Mabedi

Malawi coach Patrick Mabedi said he used the Four-Nations fixture against Kenya to debut a few players in order to evaluate them ahead of the World Cup and Africa Cup of Nations.

Kenya’s Harambee Stars thrashed host Malawi 4-0 at Bingu National Stadium in the capital Lilongwe. This means Malawi will play Zambia on Tuesday for the third position as coming from behind Zimbabwe, who eliminated Zambia will face East Africa nation, Kenya in the Final match of the FIFA sanctioned 4-Nation tournament.

“Nothing to worry about, we have seen our weaknesses, and we will work out ahead of the Zambia game. These are friendly and the reason behind is to see how we have prepared ourselves,” said Mabedi, adding: “Malawi football is on off season, that has also affected us, but as I said, these matches are here to prepare us.”
