Mozambique will host their Southern African rivals Malawi in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification Group D game on Tuesday.

Kick-off is at 15h00 CAT.

This final Group D encounter is scheduled to be played at the Stade de l’Amitié in the economic center of Benin, Cotonou.


This is because the Confederation of African Football (CAF) has suspended Mozambique’s Estádio do Zimpeto due to non-compliance with licensing regulations.

The Mambas remain winless in Group D having suffered an embarrassing 3-0 defeat to Ivory Coast away on Saturday night and it was also their fourth successive defeat.

Therefore, Mozambique are placed fourth on the group standings having accumulated just one point from their 0-0 draw against Ivory Coast at home in September this year.

Meanwhile, Malawi’s struggles in Group D continued as they suffered a humiliating 4-0 defeat to a ruthless Cameroon side at home on Saturday afternoon.

As a result, the Flames are placed third on the group standings with three points which they collected from their 1-0 win over Mozambique at home in September this year.

Match official Hassan Mohamed Hagi, who hails from Somalia, is set to officiate the encounter between Mozambique and Malawi.

The last time Mozambique hosted Malawi was in February 2009.

The Mambas secured a 2-0 win over the Flames in an international friendly match which took place at the Estádio da Machava in Matola.
