Saturday will see one of the biggest games for the flames as they play against Super Eagles. Malawi has never qualified for the world cup but this time around both the team and the coach are confident they will make it to Brazil in 2014. For that to happen Malawi has to take advantage of playing at home and beat the old guards Super Eagles.

The whole of Malawi will be behind the flames come Saturday as this is the first home match for the flames this year. They have to take home advantage and win as nothing is guaranteed when playing away and the away record for the flames is not good enough.

Under Kinnah the flames have built a good home record. This is a plus as it gives the team confidence going into the match, but nothing is achieved yet, they simply have to win. This game alone is a test for the coach as he is integrating some young talents, but in such a game pressure mounts and experience matters. Kinnah has a tough job selecting a good team that will deliver under pressure and maintain the home record.

Nigeria seems to be struggling of late and this gives the flames an advantage. Nigeria struggled heavily against Botswana and Kenya. They appear to be struggling even at home. Scoring also seems to be a challenge for them, even more away. But the flames should not underrate them, they should give it all. The super eagles are powerful and strong.

The flames have never beaten super eagles but it is not cast in stone that they cannot end that bad record against Nigeria. It is not easy beating a team of Nigeria profile but they can do it. More pressure is on the super eagles since they missed out on qualification for the last Africa Cup of Nations finals.

Do you realistically think Malawi can qualify for the World Cup finals in Brazil?
