Malawi have named a near full strength squad for the 2016 Cosafa Castle Cup as they aim to put a disappointing 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign behind them.
The Flames have been drawn in Group B alongside Angola, Lesotho and Mauritius for the showpiece in Namibia.
Head coach Ernest Mtawali has included the likes Josephy Kamwendo, Harry Nyirenda, Limbikani Mzava, Gerald Phiri, Gabadinho Mhango and John Banada among other notable names in his squad for the Southern African tournament.
It is a clear statement of intent by Mtawali as Malawi go in search of what will be their first ever Cosafa Cup crown.
Malawi finished as runners-up in 2002 and 2003, but haven't finished in the top four since losing to Zimbabwe in the final 13 years ago.
Current Fifa World Ranking: 107
Malawi kick-off their campaign against Angola (June 12), before they take on Mauritius (June 14) and Lesotho (June 16).
