Gabeya  scored the lone goal which boosted the Flames’ hopes of qualifying for the quarter-finals of the Cosafa Castle Cup.

He was drafted into the national squad by coach Ernest  Mtawali despite lack of game at his local club, Nyasa Big Bullets.

The Bullest defender  sealed a 1-0 victory  Mtawali’s men on his  24th birthday.

The Nyasa Big Bullets towering centre-back rose to nod in a Gerald Phiri Jnr corner kick just a minute into the second half.

To crown it all, Gabeya was named man-of-the-match and went away with  $250 (about K178 750).

“It’s a dream come true but I will work hard for more glory on national duty,” said Gabeya.

Mtawali side must now win their last group match against group leaders Lesotho’s Likuena to qualify for the quarter-finals.

Malawi tie at six points with Group B leaders Lesotho who made it two wins out of two matches with a  2-0 victory over youthful Angola. However, Lesotho have a one-goal aggregate advantage over the Flames.
