Reacting to the draw, Malawi coach Maggie Chombo Sadick admitted the draw to be tough but was confident his side will produce wonders.

Chombo Sadick said Malawi need to beat the best teams such as Banyana Banyana to win the Cosafa championship.

“South Africa are a top team in Cosafa they have won the competition four times and all their players are professionals but that does not scare us” She told Malawi FA website.
