The Malawian Under-23 National team arrived in Belgium on Saturday afternoon for a two week training camp that will see them play a series of friendly matches in that country.
Malawi will play seven training matches with top Belgian teams before flying out to Egypt on 3rd March for another friendly match against Egypt U 23 on 8th March.
The team will return home on 9th March ahead of Zambia matches on 20th March at home and 24th away in Lusaka.
Head coach Meke Mwase said the trip will give him a good platform to prepare his team against an experienced Zambian team.
“Firstly let me thank National coach RVG for facilitating the trip and FAM for supporting the idea that we play friendly matches before facing Zambia.
“The Europe camp will expose and motivate the players but above that will help us to improve technically by playing against high level players,” said Mwase.
The Zambian team is currently having weekly local camps overseen by assistant coach Bilton Musonda.
