Malawis national team is known as the Flames and are currently ranked 90th on the FIFA rankings list. Malawi have never qualified for the World Cup and have only once participated in the African Cup of Nations.
This was in 1984, when they were eliminated after the first round after losing to Ghana and Algeria, but at least managed a credible 2-2 draw against Nigeria.
The Flames have struggled during the 2010 World and African Cup qualifiers, and are battling it out with Guinea to secure third place in group E, behind The Ivory Coast and Burkina Faso. Chiukepo Msowoya has been Malawis top scorer in their qualifying campaign, with six goals to his name.
Enerst Mtawali, who made his name as a stylish midfielder for Mamelodi Sundowns and Bloemfontein Celtic in South Africa is arguably Malawis greatest player, although his countrymen John Maduka was also a big success story in South Africa, as was Esau Kanyenda in a brief spell at Jomo Cosmos.
A large portion of the national team play their football at home, or in neighbouring South Africa, with a fair number also scattered across Europe, in countries such as Russia, Denmark and Sweden. The Malawi Premier Division was established in 1986 and is made up of 15 teams. Big Bullets have won the most titles (10), while the current champions are Silver Strikers.
