The Nomads team manager Kannock Munde and Thom Milanzie led the team in the absence of coach Gerald Phiri, who is in Zambia with Malawi Under-20.

Ng’ambi, a forgotten young  man in the first round  , pounced on a defensive lapse to open the scoring  through a powerful header  before starting and finishing the move for his second.

Defending midfielder Ngwira  added the third in the dying minute of the game  with his “bend it like Beckam” free-kick to send the Nomads stands into an electric celebrations.

It wasn’t a commanding performance by Mafco in its first away second round game, but they took their chances when they scored their consolation goal on the spot kick after Bongani Kaipa made an agriculture tackle in the forbidden area.

However, the Nomads  in Ng’ambi , they have a striker keen to make an impression after his career stalled during a first season at the Lali-Lubani road as he  failed  to break into the Nomads   star-studded attack.

The Nomads also featured former Chikwawa United midfielder Arthur Chadewa, who operated as the right back.

Chadewa displayed fantastic football as he impressed with his grass cutter passes and composure.

The only notable mistake, which Chadewa committed was towards the end of the first half when  he was caught on his heels after Zasher Nong’oneza snaked through him before passing the ball to Saidi Mtekama and smashing a fierce shot which was brilliantly saved.

Mtekama also nearly netted for Mafco after curling pass, took a touch and side-footed in at the near post.

Ng’ambi, who was voted man of the match, limped off injured.

Mighty Wanderers standing in coach Kannock Munde hailed his boys for a stunning performance and assured the Nomads fans for more better results, while his opposite member Stereo Gondwe conceded the defeat but promised to rectify problems in their next match.
