Malawi survives Guinea scare at Bingu National Stadium

The Malawi National Soccer team, under their tutelage of Patrick Mabedi, managed to escape a potential loss to Guinea at Bingu National Stadium by securing a last-minute 2-2 draw with a crucial header from Lawrence Chaziya.

Initially, Malawi took the lead during the first half, dominating the game, and ended the first half in their favor. However, during the second half, Malawi became complacent, allowing Guinea to score two quick goals within a space of five minutes. This unexpected turn of events left the crowd, who had come to support the Flames, in a state of silence.

As commentators like Peter Fote expressed their grief and disappointment in their commentary, the gangling defender Lawrence Chaziya scored a well-executed header, rescuing Malawi from what seemed like an impending defeat. This draw was vital for Malawi, helping them avoid humiliation in the streets.

It’s worth noting that Malawi was playing the game for pride, as they had already failed to qualify for the AFCON competition. In Malawi’s group, Guinea and Egypt were the teams that had secured qualification.
