Malawi are sure that they have enough ability to upset Ghana to make it to the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations when the two sides face off in Accra on September 8.
The Chief Executive of Football Association Malawi Charles Nyirenda told Goal.com Ghana that their confidence level has heightened ahead of the clash after insisting playing the first leg in Accra is advantageous to his side.
“We are preparing very well for this particular match because everybody knows the calibre of the Ghana team, but actually it is not as strong as we know previously,” Nyirenda said.
“All of us have reminded ourselves about how important this match is and I can say that to Malawi, this match is a do or die affair and hopefully, we will cause a shock.”
He added: “We are very delighted that the first leg is in Accra because it is an added advantage for us to play the second leg in Malawi either in Lilongwe or Blantyre.”
The Black Stars will play the Flames at the Accra Sports Stadium on September 8 with the return leg scheduled for October 4.
