Blantyre, November 8, 2017: Lower-Shire based Umodzi Football Club has promised to boot Telecom Networks Malawi (TNM) super league side Moyale Barracks out of the MK50 million 2017 FISD Challenge Cup.

Umodzi FC Team Manager, Vincent Kwanjo, made the comments Wednesday ahead of their encounter against Moyale Barracks scheduled for Thursday at Kalulu Stadium, Chikwawa in the FISD Cup Quarter-Finals.

Kwanjo said his charges are more than ready for the encounter and Moyale should expect nothing but tough time.

“We are extremely ready for the quarter-final match. We have a good team and we shall give Moyale Barracks tough time,” said Kwanjo.

He added, “We are calling on the soccer fraternity in the lower-shire to come in their large numbers to give us morale as we will be booting Moyale out of the FISD Cup tomorrow (Thursday),” Kwanjo said.

Charles Kamanga, Moyale Barracks Assistant Mentor says his team will not underrate Umodzi FC. He admitted that they expect some kind of challenge from their opponents.

“We know a bit about Umodzi FC. We don’t know how they play their football so cannot afford to and will not underrate them.

“However, we are so hopeful that we will carry the day come rain or sunshine,” said Kamanga.

In the other FISD Quarter-Final match to be played on Thursday, Kamuzu Barracks will host Tigers FC at Civo Stadium in the Capital City Lilongwe.

The other quarter-final matches was supposed to be played last week-end but Football Association of Malawi (FAM) cancelled them due to the road accident tragedy which befell Malawi Defence Force family.

The winner between Umodzi FC and Moyale Barracks will face Nyasa Big Bullets while the winner between Tigers and Kamuzu Barracks will face Masters Security in the Semi-finals.

To reach the semi-finals, Bullets beat Blues Eagles 8-7 in post-match penalties while Masters Security beat Dedza Soccer saints by 1 goal to nil.
