Malawi head coach Griffin ‘Zagallo’ Siyanda boasted that his team will march on to glory without losing a single game.

“I have a stronger team than any other country here, so I am confident that we will defend our title unbeaten,” he said, according to The Citizen of Tanzania

He had however complained about fixtures congestion, which has forced the participating teams to play two matches per day.

On their way to the finals, Malawi defeated hosts Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana.
