Flames 1, Super Eagles 1

By Amalawi - Sun Jun 10, 10:56 am

The Flames of Malwi on Saturday started their journey to Brazil on a good note as they held Super Eagles of Nigeria to a 1-1 draw at the Kamuzu Stadium.

The Flames made sure that they maintained their strong show at home by avoiding defeat having suffered just one loss since coach Kinnah Phiri took charge in 2008.

The opening 45 minutes was an even contest but the Flames created the better chances with Robin Ngalande hitting the crossbar once. The teenage striker, Ngalande did prove a handful afterwards for the Nigerian back line.

In the restart, the flames looked the more likely to open score in the first five minutes and even had a penalty appeal turned down from a corner kick.
And on 90 minutes, midfielder Gabriel Reuben headed Nigeria in front off a free kick won by Musa.

Nigeria’s lead lasted for few seconds as substitute John Banda drew the flames on level terms inside the added minutes by squeezing his effort past Enyeama.

Kinnah Phiri will face Chad in their second home game this year.
