A late goal from Franck Chizuze saw the Junior Flames snatch a victory which looked unlikely after being reduced to 10 men during the second half after Henry Chiwaya was shown a second yellow card.

The Junior Flames had to come from behind to win the match as Madagascar took the lead through Fabrizio Mosa  on the half-hour mark.

Substitute Raphael Banda equalised for Malawi five minutes into the second half.

They continued to have the better opportunities though and stole the points a minute  from full time through Chizuze.

Their next game is on Sunday against defending champions Zambia who walloped guest side Kenya 4-0.

Malawi last group match will be against Kenya on Tuesday.

Group A gets under way on Saturday as hosts Mauritius take on Namibia in the first match at the Stade Georges V in Curepipe.

The home nation will be looking for a good start and a big local support as they take on a tough opponent.

South Africa enter the fray afterwards with a meeting against Seychelles at the same venue.
