Malawians have come to terms with the exist of their national soccer team, the Flames, from the Orange Africa Cup of Nations and are now looking forward to welcoming their team at Chileka International Airport in Blantyre.
The team tumbled 3-1 against Mali in a game they should have easily won. Striker Russel Mwafulirwa fluffed a host of scoring opportunities while goal tender Swadick Sanudi seemed to have had a surgical operation that 'opened' his hands and made him too charitable, allowing the unimpressive Malians to score two goals within two minutes.
But Malawians now say the team should dwell on the positives from Angola, a country that has become synonymous with mismanagement and poor organisation.
But missing in Malawi's cities are the Red, Green and Black colours that surfaced after the Flames humbled Algeria 3-1.
