What formation does Malawi play? 4-4-2? And what happened to their GK Kapuza? Thanks for any help.

Zach, Malawi doesn’t have a specific formation of play. The formation of play is customized based on the opponents. Sometimes they play 4-4-2; 4-5-1; 5-4-1; etc. They never “park the bus”. So 10-0-0 is not one of them.
Zach, Simeon Kapuza is no longer with the team. I don’t know what happened to him.

The flames is the good side, only that when it the game is in progress some of the other players in the pitch start watching instead of participating the war.
Others, they shaw good performance during the training cession and when it comes during the game they do not perform to demostrate them.
My advince to the flames is to have one heart during the play like other teams do. stop playing individual soccer for you to be famours leaving the flag of Malawi down. If you do this you will be the first team to comeback.
I have great confidence for the flames to qualify into quarter-finals.
All the best,moto-moto. The flames.
