Malawi target win in Ethiopia for a spot in Afcon finals

Malawi national team, the Flame will hope to win Wednesday and hope results go their way elsewhere when they meet Ethiopia in the last round of Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers. The kick-off is at 18:00.

The Flames, who beat Mali 2-0 on Saturday to give themselves a chance to advance to the premium Africa football competition early next year, are third in Group B with six points, and are on level points with second-placed Mali, who are still in contention to qualify as well.

But the Eagles, might be left out as they face red-hot and already-qualified Algeria, who have 100% record with five wins from five games.

If Mali lose at home and Malawi win away at the Walias, the Flames will make a return in the tournament since 2010.

If both Malawi and Mali beat Algeria and Ethiopia respectively, Mali will definitely finish second and qualify automatically, but Malawi can also qualify if they finish as the best third-placed team in the qualifiers depending on the other 3rd finishers across the seven groups.

Robert Ng’ambi, Esau Kanyenda and Josephy Kamwendo are all expected to inspire the Flames against Ethiopia and reignite their chances to reach Equatorial Guinea.

According to the Malawi coach, Young Chimodzi, their aim is to win in Addis Ababa and his charges are hyped up for the clash.

“I believe we can win and my players believe a victory is in for us, that’s the most important thing for us,” said Chimodzi.

“ This is a must win for us and we are eager to come back home smiling.”

Malawi’s South African-based striker Esau Kanyenda, who scored a goal in their match against Mali, says there are going for another kill in Ethiopia: “Not everyone gave us a chance against Mali who boast European based players in their squad. But we managed to see them off.”

“We are going for another win in Ethiopia, because every player wants to see himself participating in major tournaments like Afcon,” concluded the 32-year old striker.

However, the hosts coach, Mariano Barreto, said: “ I am counting on Algeria to defeat Mali so we can keep alive our hopes of qualification.”

The match to wrap Group B is scheduled to be staged at Addis Ababa Stadium.

    Flames, wish you the best that you can to deliver this evening. Historically, it was again on 19 November, 1978 that Malawi beat Zambia 3-2 at Kamuzu Stadium in the finals of the East and Central African Cup Finals, for Malawi to lift an international cup for the first time. They managed to retain the cup the following year in Kenya. Best wishes Flames!!!!!
