'Malawi will beat DRC'

Richard Chirombo, AfricaNews reporter in Lilongwe, Malawi
Malawi will beat Democratic Republic of Congo by hook or crook in October to progress to the next round of the Africa Cup of Nations and World Cup qualifiers, said Malawi National Football team coach, Kinnah Phiri.
Phiri said his team lost to the DRC by fluke because the "referee dubiously" awarded a penalty during the dying minutes of the game. "They (DRC) did not beat us; the referee did the job for them. He dubiously awarded them a penalty to savage their home pride, and they will pay for that," he said.

He added: "The loss DRC suffered at the hands of Egypt did the job for us. When you cheat, you don't have to celebrate much. We will beat them here, and revenge the injustice we suffered in their country because we played better than them."

Phiri said Malawians should stop dreaming about qualification and start to vocally support their team. He said this may be achieved through good patronage to soccer matches.

Malawians love foreign leagues than their own, a development that has seen numbers to soccer matches dwindle.
