Malawi national football team, the Flames, have secured their place in the plate final of the COSAFA Cup by beating Comoros 2-1 at the Princess Magogo Stadium in KwaMashu, Durban, on Tuesday night.
Malawi dominated from the early minutes, but found Comoros goalkeeper Fahadi Mohamed a difficult man to get past. The shot-stopper denied the likes of Frank Gabadingho Mhango and John Banda with a string of excellent saves in the opening quarter.
On 24 minutes he was finally beaten by a fine shot direct from a free kick by Gerald Phiri Jr, but the upright came to Comoros’ rescue as the effort rebounded away to safety.
COMOROS (0) 1 (Hachim 61’)
MALAWI (1) 2 (Mbulu 30’, Chirwa 90’)
