Malawi national football team put up a spirited performance to hold highly fancied Guinea to a goalless draw away in Conakry.

Mtawali and his charges get creditable point from Guinea

Coach Ernest Mtawali’s decision to give youthful goalkeeper Brighton Munthali an international debut paid off as the former Wizzard player kept his team in the competition by saving many would-be goals.

Football Association of Malawi director of finance Christopher Mdolo who accompanied the team said Munthali made two crucial saves after he was called to duty in the first 21 minutes.

But the team which was a mixed squad of old and trusted players and young blood made the best to hold their head high.

Mtawali recalled defender Harry Nyirenda, Limbikani Mzava, Francis Mlimbika; midfilders Captain Joseph Kamwendo, Robert Ng’ambi by public demand did their best.

The result has put Malawi back into the race with two points after drawing against Swaziland and lost to Zimbabwe 2-1 in the opening match.

The draw has also made the competition in group L wide after Swaziland and Zimbabwe settled for another draw in the same group.

Malawi and Guinea have two points each while Swaziland and Zimbabwe have 5 points apiece.

    Now we are really tired of u players always we are loosing the games you know “why?” U are gridy of allowances. There is a seperation between civilians and police and army you look you can win the games without these two sides which is impossible. What I can beg to FAM is take time, give chances to these two sides for preparations, what am trying to say is this; all civilians have to make one team also police and MDF make one team and you FAM you have to go to the radios for advertising and venue should be there at kamuzu stadium. so the people of Malawi should come and cheers their game and will see which side can push up our nation into standard level. Am giving you this idea because am also malawian I love my team but not like this . Thax

    Its quite strange for people to heap praises on Bushiri for the Flames away draw with Guinea.
    . . .For what, really?

    If it is for the K44mn which arguably helped to put the team in a stable psychological state hence the team’s gallant display . . .
    . . . do we have any molecule of evidence suggesting that there would be another result if it were not for the K44mn? Honestly, we dont!
    . . . did we want to win or lose or draw?; It was to win, be reminded!
    . . . is a draw any better than a win?; Never!
    . . . do you celebrate a battle when the war is not yet over? Unless you have a well-written record of questionable stability of mind, you dont.
    ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
    Its just sad that if the only thing you have known in life is poverty; you easily become satisfied with, hence more likely to settle for less. Otherwise nobody, not even the team itself or the coach, is to be praised for anything here; coz . . .
    . . . the result is not what we expected . . .
    . . . this one battle is but a war began . . .
    . . . Malawi team’s inconsistency is well documented . . .

    Foolish Malawians why are you thanking a vessel and not God Himself. Remember all what man of God do is to represent the Master and they don’t assume the Master position no matter how Good they may be. God does not share his Glory with anyone. He is Asseity. Luke 17:10 is the response of every vessel of God. Please don’t bring the anger of God here.

    Fools praise and worship mortals wise people praise and worship GOD. Well done boys holding Guinea in their backyard. Roast them so we can drink milk, it’s been a long time welcome party on arrival at Chiwembe on Sunday evening bring a bottle of water or juice and your own music……
