A defender for both Be Forward Wanderers and Malawi National Team (Flames) Lucky Malata has announced his retirement from international football.

Speaking in Mozambique where Wanderers was playing a friendly match against Quelimane City,  Malata said he feels he has done his part and that youngsters should be given chance to shine as well.

“For me, the national team is over. I’ve done my part to play for my nation. It hurts but l have to do it because we have young and upcoming players who can also do the same job well. I feel this is their time to shine,” he said.

Malata also thanked the Football Association of Malawi and all the coaches for their faith in him when he was playing for the Flames, more especially when he captained the side.

“I would like to thank the Flames coaches who selected me the time l played for the Flames. I’ve had great pleasure in sharing that honour with all the players I’ve played with.

“I would like to thank them, the fans and my family for their support and encouragement during my international career. Representing and captaining my country is what I dreamed of as a boy and it has truly been a great honour.

“I have always given my all and it breaks my heart to make this decision. I want to wish RVG and the team every success for the future,” said Malata.

    When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added"
    checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Thanks a lot!
