Malawi face Senegal on Tuesday 18 January in the final round of Pool B matches. With three points, the Flames hope to qualify against the Lions of Senegal.
And for Malawi coach Meck Mwase, his players have a big task ahead of them on Tuesday. "I told my players that they have the opportunity to make history. We have all seen the many upsets so far in the tournament and our opponents must be prepared because it will not be easy. We are only missing one player and that is our captain, but we have equally good players who can replace him as we fight to qualify," the coach told a pre-match press conference.
Senegal-Malawi kicks off at 4pm GMT.
