Malawi ready for Ethiopia test

10 September 2014, 12:26

Blantyre - The Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre could turn into a casualty ward on Wednesday afternoon when wounded Flames of Malawi host limping Walya Antelopes of Ethiopia in a Group E qualifier for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon), SuperSport reports.

Malawi and Ethiopia stagger onto the artificial turf battered, bruised, angry and exhausted after severe and merciless 2-0 and 2-1 whipping by Mali and Algeria away and at home on Sunday and Saturday respectively.

Both teams are without a point only a scientific goal-aggregate gap separate the bottom Flames from the third-placed Ethiopians in the group which Mali lead.

The Eagles go into Algeria battle field on the same day in buoyant mood.

The same cannot be said about the battle of Blantyre. The Flames, ranked 106 as of August, surely know that if they are to match 2010 feat of qualifying for the Afcon finals, then winning at home is not negotiable. Key midfielder Robert Ng’ambi admitted.
