Malawi is another African side that is relatively inexperienced on the global stage having only been recognised as an official football union since 1966. Since then they have only managed to qualify for two African Nations Cup appearances since attempting to do so since 1976.
Their first appearance in the Nations Cup was in 1984, but their stay was short-lived as they excited after the first round of the competition. They were eliminated after the first round after losing to Ghana and Algeria, but at least managed a credible 2-2 draw against Nigeria.Their second appearance as in the last hosting of the 2010 Nations Cup, but again they were ousted in the first round.
The Flames biggest success on the football stage came in 1987 when they did manage to win the All-African games, but besides from that they have not fared well on the African continent.
They will be hoping to once again qualify for the Nations Cup and may be able to do so considering that a large number of their players plying their football in some of the best leagues in the world.
