Tanzania progress despite defeat in Blantyre

Tanzania booked their place in the next round of 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers despite a 1-0 defeat to Malawi at the Kamuzu Banda Stadium in Blantyre on Sunday.

Goals from Mbwana Samata and Thomas Ulimwengu secured a 2-0 win for the Taifa Stars in Dar Es Salaam earlier this week, and the advantage proved to be enough as they set-up a clash with Algeria in the second round.

The loss comes as a huge blow for Ernest Mtawali and his assistant Nzazwirwimo Ramadhan, who just this week signed a one-year deal with the Football Association of Malawi.

As expected, Malawi applied all the early pressure in the second-leg, knowing they had to find the back of the net on at least three occasions, to ensure their progression.

John Banda sent the home fans into delirium two minutes before the break with a superb goal.

The strike threatened to derail Tanzania's chances, but the visitors held firm and despite the introduction of South African based Frank Mhango and Robin Ngalande after the hour, Malawi couldn't find the second goal.

The next round of qualifiers will take place early next month.
