Coach for the Malawi national team, the Flames,  Young Chimodzi said he could not tgive up ahead of this Saturday’s home meeting with Mali in a group B clash in Blantyre. Kick-off is at 2:30pm (CAT).

Flames side go into this clash occupying position four in Group B after one win and draw, with three losses.

“The response from the players has been quite good and there are no injuries. The way the boys have trained gives me hope. Come Saturday, we will try so hard to produce results,” Chimodzi said.

Going into this battle, it is either Malawi win and keep alive their qualification hopes or they lose and go  into next Wednesday’s group final match in Ethiopia as a dead rubber match.

“In football, there is always a game that is decisive and you just have to face it, contain it and focus on the job and that is what we are doing,” Chimodzi insisted.

Malawians will hope for considering the availability of one of their star players and captain, Joseph Kamwendo.

The TP Mazembe star has joined Platinum Stars midfielder, Robert Ng’ambi and Polokwane City’s forward, Esau Kanyenda in camp for the match.

“I always put my country first and no matter how tough the road might be. I have a mission to lead the team to victory and I remain optimistic that we can win on Saturday. With the team that’s there, it is possible,” Kamwendo said.

The visitors, on the other hand, are enjoying their form as they’re currently sitting at number two with two wins and a victory in Blantyre will finalise their qualification.

Judging by their confidence, they’ll target to finish their campaign in style with a victory away in Blantyre and celebrate in their clash against Algeria at home four days later.

Mali are second in the group with six points, six behind already qualified Algeria whereas Ethiopia lie third on superior goal aggregate over Malawi with whom they share three points.

      They have proved you totally wrong on the pitch my friend! In case you do not know, they have won by a confortable 2:0 and it could have been much more had it not for several chances we squandered

      And they have delivered!!!!! Could even have scored 4 or 5 goals minimum had it not been for our poor finishing, especially first half.
