Monrovia – The Malawians profited from tactical mishap from Liberia with decisions on selection a bit of a hurdle. The decision in playing with a double pivot and lone striker for a team playing at home against a not too fancy opponent was so disappointing. Intensity, flair and aggression were lacking. Tonia Tisdell tried to make things happen and his function should mostly be about going on the front foot with his dribbling and less defensive work.

A below par performance in the opening of the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
The front man in Kpah Sherman was at times isolated upfront as the issue of supply was few and far between. A single pivot from the onset would have helped the team massively.
Marcus Macauley is surprisingly been overlooked despite adding a good dimension to the team. Telegraph passing, element of surprise with artilllery shots from long range and admirable work ethic are qualities that should make him a mainstay in the team.
With Brem been replaced and boy wonder Divine Teah coming on, there was some promise, but how come the lad Divine was substituted? Who told you Jebor and Kpah can’t play together? Was goalkeeper Boisson really fit to start the match? Did he enter the match with that foot injury?
A 1-0 win for the Flames at the SKD shows Keita needs a rethink as Equatorial Guinea comes knocking g on Monday for three points at the SKD.
Amends must be made for better result.
