Malawi gets ‘lifeline’ after beating South Sudan


Malawi Flames have one game to win to qualify

KARTOUM (MalawiTalk) – Malawi national football team, the Flames, have boosted their 2022 Africa Cup of Nations chances following their 1-0 win over South Sudan away in Khartoum, Sudan on Wednesday.

Malawi scored in the  47th minute  after a strike from a Gerald Phiri Jnr corner kick  which was deflected into the net by a South Sudan player for the only goal.

Football Association of Malawi (FAM) president Dr Walter Nyamilandu said the win was vital.

“Three points in the bag. Big boost for the Flames. We have a lifeline. Malawi has every reason to celebrate. We won’t stop believing. Go Flames,” Nyamilandu tweeted.

The Flames are still third in Group B with seven points and will qualify for Cameroon 2022 if they beat Uganda in the last qualifier next Monday at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.

South Sudan are bottom placed with just three point.
