Malawi national team Captain Dave Banda remains optimistic that the team has what it takes to overturn the 1-0 defeat to Madagascar and qualify to the next round in the 2018 Championship of African Nations.
The Flames needed a positive result in the first leg match in order to make their job in the return encounter easier but Ardino Raveloarisona’s lone goal for Madagascar has given Flames Coach Ronny van Geneugde a daunting task this coming Saturday at the Bingu National Stadium.
The Flames have to win 2-0 if they want to progress through to another round to face Mozambique.
But Flames captain Dave Banda, is confident that they have what it takes to overturn the result and qualify for the next round.
“The players know how important qualifying to the next round is. Our only appeal to our fans is that they should come at Bingu Stadium to drum up support to us. We now have an idea of how our opponents play.
“We will take the lessons from the first leg, work together and within the period of five days we will sharpen the rough edges and push hard in order to qualify to the next round,” said the Kamuzu Barracks FC workhorse.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
