Surprise As Bucs Star Misses Out On National Team Call Up

An Orlando Pirates star has missed out on a call up to his country’s national team despite his impressive start at the Buccaneers and to the 2019/20 season.

Following his move from Bidvest Wits to Pirates during the off-season, Gabadinho Mhango had a flying start with the Soweto giants after he scored on debut against Bloemfontein Celtic.

With the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers set to begin, Malawi are one of the first African teams to name their squad as they prepare for their back-to-back matches against Botswana, which are scheduled for next month.

Mhango is one of the notable absentees from the Flames’ latest squad named by Coach Meke Mwase.

Prior to his official exit from Wits, Mhango had been in Mwase’s squad for the 2019 Cosafa Cup hosted in Durban from 25 May to 8 June.

Mhango finished the tournament as one of the top goal scorers along with Malawi teammate Gerald Phiri Jnr and Ashley Nazira of Mauritius.
