Africa World Cup 2014 qualifying result: Malawi survive Namibia scare

The Flames were held to a goalless draw by visiting Namibia but still maintain their second spot in Group F.

Malawi picked one crucial point on Wednesday in the 2014 World Cup qualifying against visiting Namibia, as both teams shared the spoils from a goalless draw.

Buoyed by a vibrant support from home fans in Blantyre, The Flames controlled proceedings early into the meeting but were always crowded out before they could finish their efforts.

Namibia’s steadfast defence and quick assembling midfield helped to thwart most of the scary actions from the adversary team, which eventually settled in an aimless back and forth tussle, ending goalless much to the favour of Malawi who still maintain their second position in Group F with six points, two behind leaders Nigeria who stunned Kenya 1-0 in Nairobi on Wednesday.

Malawi will host next bottom-placed Kenya on June 12 in Blantyre.
