With a chance to win bronze medal in third/fourth place match on Sunday at Gelvandale Stadium, the Junior Flames lost again to Angola 2-1 in a game the led with Andrew Lameck goal.
Msakakuona said despite losing all games, his charges have “gained international exposure.”
Malawi striker Chifundo Mphasi finished as top scorer with three goals.
