APM assures Malawi’s Flames of government support

BLANTYRE (Maravipost)–Malawi President Arthur Peter Mutharika has hailed the Flames for the gallant fight they put against Ethiopia Wednesday night despite failing to qualify Equatorial Guinea 2015 Afcon finals.

“Despite the fact that we have failed to qualify for the 2015 African Cup of Nations, I want to urge the Flames not to be discouraged but keep the spirit of fighting and sacrificing for their nation.


“My government is committed to improving the welfare of our national football team and all sport in the country,” said Mutharika.

The Flames’ hopes to qualify for the finals were shattered after they were held to a goalless draw by Ethiopia in Addis Ababa.

Mali secured the second Group B slot after beating group leaders Algeria 2-0 in Bamako.

This was Algeria’s first defeat, having won all their previous games in group stages.

Most Flames’ fans failed to come to terms with Mali’s ‘surprise victory’ over Algeria, who emphatically beat Mali in first leg.

The Flames needed nothing short of a win to have realistic chances of booking a ticket for the finals. They have finished on third position with seven points.

“Flames were supposed to fight their battle and not depend on other teams.

“We were not supposed to depend on other teams to do the job for us,” said coach Young Chimodzi.
