Equatorial Guinea dream over for Malawi, Ethiopia

Malawi failed to register a win against Ethiopia during their 2015 AFCON Group B qualifier match in Addis Ababa on Wednesday night, with the encounter ending goalless.

The failure to qualify is a huge blow to the Flames after displaying one of their finest performances against Mali in their previous match.

In the other group match, the log leaders Algeria were defeated 2-0 by Mali at home to seal their qualification for Africa’s premier football showpiece.

This result automatically rules out the Flames and the Walias of Ethiopia, both sides will have to start from scratch aiming for 2017.

Although Malawi relied heavily on the result between Mali and Algeria, they also needed a win from this encounter to seal their ticket for the next year’s edition of this continental showpiece.

On the other hand, the hosts welcomed the Southern African side having been rooted at the bottom of the log after losing four matches.

The Walias crashed out in the first round of the previous competition in South Africa in 2013 and will now have to focus their energies on making it in 2017.

The Young Chimodzi-led side could not produce the form they displayed when they defeated the Malians in their previous encounter.

It’s now confirmed that Group B sees the Algerians and Mali going through to the highly anticipated continental showpiece next January.
