‘Malawi’s Flames have no chance’: 2015 Afcon qualifiers

BLANTYRE (Maravipost)—There is no chance for the Flames to qualify for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) finals, sports analyst Peter Kanjere and former Malawi national football team captain Peter Mponda have said.

The Flames have so far lost two games in the campaign and need to win their three remaining games to book a ticket for the finals in Morocco.

The Fames first lost 2-0 before collecting three points after a 3-2 win over Ethiopia. Algeria beat Malawi 2-0 last Saturday at Kamuzu stadium, their third straight win in the campaign while Mali has won two games.

Meanwhile the Flames are in Algiers for the reserve match against Algeria this Wednesday.

“There is no chance for Malawi of qualifying for Afcon. It could have been different if we had collected a point here at home,” said Mponda.

On his part, Kanjere said the Flames are ‘not disciplined’ in the midfielder where they lack ball winners such as Hellings Mwakasungula. 

“It should be least surprising as the midfield combination of Chimango Kayira, Joseph Kamwendo and Robert Ng’ambi offers duplication of attacking roles. 

According to him, the Flames gave the goals away to the visitors.

“Soon, Algeria scored their second goal. If the first goal was atrocious, the second was comical. Meeting Algeria this Wednesday at their backyard could turn into a disaster,” said Kanjere.

However, coach Young Chimodzi said all is lost for the Flames saying his charges can turn the turn tables in Algiers.

“Yes, it’s a daunting task, but the team will do better in Algeria. We are going to make some necessary changes in the quest to turn the tables,” said Chimodzi. 

Algeria top Group B with nine points, Mali second with six points while Ethiopia have not collected any point.
