Football Association of Malawi (FAM) President, Walter Nyamilandu has for the last minute told Malawian soccer fans that the game between Malawi and Togo has been cancelled. Nyamilandu said the game has been cancelled because they have not received any official confirmation from their opponents.
"As the situation stands now, we would rather play Kuwait other than hope for a friendly against either Togo or Zambia because up to now there is no confirmation.
"Togo's friendly was subject to their trip to Congo Brazaville where they were scheduled to camp which has not materialized. So, we could not take a gamble because Togo were not forthcoming and instead we will play Kuwait," he said, on speaking to the country's local news paper, Nation Sport.
The game between Togo was scheduled to be played on January 2 after Flames' return from Egypt where they are playing another friendly with Egypt today.
Kuwait is also in Egypt amid preparations for their Asian Cup match against Austria which will take place on January 6.
Meanwhile, Malawian soccer fans are worried since they were preparing to see another top class player, Emanuel Adebayor after they last watched Didier Drogba and Solomon Kalou to name a few.
Malawi is preparing 2010 African of Nations Cup matches that will take place in Angola. They were drawn in Group A with Mali, Angola and Nigeria.
