    It's all over here and Ghana have qualified for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa. Afriyie Acquah got the only goal of the match at Lilongwe where 25,000 people came to witness the game.
  • 90' + 1'
    And we have entered into stoppage time and Ghana are almost in South Africa.
  • 89'
    Malawi are still struggling to threaten Ghana and this game could end with same score. That means the four-time African champions will be making their way to South Africa 2013.
  • 86'
    Substitution for Ghana. Rabiu makes way for Abdul Majeed Waris
  • 81'
    Pressure is on Ghana now. Ooops! Atsu has been brought down and still Referee Khalid‎ keeps his cards to himself. The Porto player is being stretched off the pitch.
  • 78'
    It's still a 50-50 affair at the Chivo stadium in Lilongwe. Looks as if it's a temporary holiday for both keepers as the ball is being kept in the middle with little chances here and there
  • 74'
    The Malawians also make a substitution
  • 68'
    SubstitutionA. Ayew Daniel Adjei
  • 68'
    What a shooooooooot!!! But wasn't that near for Kwarasey to panic.
  • 67'
    The Malawians are still keeping possession. Looks like the Ghanaians are relaxed a bit. Ghana about to make a substitution and looks like it's Daniel Nii Adjei coming on.
  • 64'
    A chance for Malawiiiiiiiiiiii!!!! The striker was late in causing a stir in Ghana's defense.
  • 61'
    What's going on here. Officiating is quite poor. Abdulrahman Khalid‎ still got his cards in his pocket. Asamoah Gyan was badly tackled right after Rabiu's and the referee is still keeping his cards
  • 58'
    Rabiu Mohammed on the ball. Moving straight towards the Malawian half, but he has been dispossed.
  • 57'
    It's throw for Ghana. Paintsil steps up to effect it. Ooops ball headed for another throw, but this time for Malawi
  • 52'
    Andre Ayew has been given a rough tackle. The referee says it's a foul. Kick taken and Ghana are still having the ball
  • 48'
    Could this be goal No. 2 for Ghaaaana! Atsu, Atsu… oh no he beats his market but that curler was too much and went way off the post.
  • 45'
    And we are back in action
  • Malawi will have to score at least four in order to make it to their third appearance at the Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa 2013
  • 45' + 1'
    It's half time at Lilongwe. Ghana is leading by a goal.
  • 38'
    Asamoah Gyan is on the move. Pressing on, but oh he has been brought down by a Malawian defender, but the referee says no he came down so easily. Play goes on
  • 30'
    Ooooooh!!! It's not looking good here at Lilongwe. So much physical play. But a Malawian is down now seeking treatment. Did Paintsil touch him?
  • 29'
    Ghana's John Boye being taken off the pitch. It's becoming a physical game now and the earlier the referee stamps his feet the better.
  • 26'
    This is another chance for Ghana to make it two. But Atsu couldn't land well to hit the back of the net. Well, Black Stars still leading by a goal
  • 20'
    It's corner for the Flames. Well taken, but no Malawian to connect.
  • 17'
    Here's a shot!!! But that was way off hence Ghana's shot-stopper can breath a sigh of relief
  • 13'
    The Malawian forward seem to be finding their way into the Ghana back, but finishing quite poor
  • 11'
    The Flames have a tall order on their hands now. They need to score four in order to book a seat in South Africa
  • 8'
    Malawi nearly punished Ghana, but Adam Kwarasey was right on hand to parry the goal bound shot
  • 4'

  • 4'
    Goal! Afriyie Acquah
  • It's corner for Ghana. But the Flames' defense clears it the danger zone.
