They progress on a 3-2 goal aggregate after they successfully beat the ‘Junior Zebras’ 2-1 away in Gaborone last weekend.

During Tuesday’s match, both sides started the game on a very high note but the home side looked more impressive and promising as they displayed clasic passing style of play.

However, there was no shot on target from both sides inside the opening 10 minutes of the match.

Malawi launched their first promising counter attack in the 9th minute but the final shot from overlapping defender Precious Sambani went off target.

A minute later Patrick Phiri nearly put Malawi ahead but he was challenged by Botswana goalkeeper to win a free kick which bared no fruits.

Botswana also responded with a couple of fine moves and counter attacks but ended up shooting blank.

First half ended goalless.

After recess, Flames Technical Panel headed by Meke Mwase introduced Peter Banda.

Banda proved his superiority when he put his name on the score sheet on the 66th minute to give the home side the lead.

Malawi tried as much as they could to defend their lead but ended up conceding in the 4th minute of added time after living dangerously almost for the entire last 15 minutes of the second half.

Congrats junior flames. Look i don’t support this achoke, atule pansi udindo when someone on top has failed some of their duties. I believe in second and even third chances, But this coach RVG whatever his name is together with his technical panel and including the FAM president Walter Nyamilandu, Please leave our national team to capable people. I salute you Nyamilandu for bringing a lot of developments in malawi football but you have failed our national team miserably. You also have betrayed Malawians by keeping that useless coach for so long yet he has nothing to offer.
