Mbulu: scorer of vital goal

This will be the third time for Malawi to be in Afcin finals having previously competed in the finals in 1984 and 2010.

Malawi started the campaign with a 1-0 over South Sudan before two back to back losses to Uganda (2-0) and Burkina Faso (3-1).

A draw against Burkina Faso at home in November proved vital for Flames as it has kept the Flames in contention after a 1-0 victory over South Sudan last Wednesday.

Coach Meck Mwase said this is Malawi’s moment to return to Afcon.

The problems is some unpatriotic malawians will start buying these guys beers, kanyenya and you know what, ma d7 adzingowapatsanso katundu for free.

These are words from of wisdom from the wise one
