The Malawi national football team, Flames, edged Ethiopia 2-1 in full view of President Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera.
At 36 minutes in the second half, renowned commentator Charles Nyirenda was overheard on Zodiak Broadcasting Station weighing in on what sums up the lacklustre performance that characterized the Flames play in their first 2023 African Cup of Nations qualifier.
Everyone could agree, Ethiopia was a better side but as they stole the show with good playe, the Flames did the scoring.
Eventually, the Flames with the help of good omen from President Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera edged Ethiopia with two first half penalty-kick goals from Frank Gabadinho Mhango.
The Dominant Ethiopians converted their consolation in the second half through the spot kick as well.
Despite the poor performance, the Flames is three points richer and on to their second match against Guinea next week.
