African Cup of Nations 2015: Ethiopia Lost 3-2 for Malawi

The Ethiopian walias lost to Malawi in the qualifying match for African cup of Nations 2015.  According to the BBC Sport report Malawi’s Atusaye Nayondo scored twice to help his side to a 3-2 home win against Ethiopia.

Nyondo struck the first goal of the game on 18 minutes but Malawi were pegged back by an equalizer from Getaneh Kebede.

However, a second-half effort from Frank Banda restored the hosts’ lead and Nyondo’s second goal rendered meaningless a stoppage strike from the visitors’ Yussuf Yussuf Saleh.

Malawi Football Association president Walter Nyamilandu wrote on his Twitter page:   “Three vital points in the bag. A deserved victory that keeps our dreams alive though earned the hard way.”

Another 11 matches will be played on Wednesday and defending champions Nigeria are desperate to bounce back with a good result against South Africa having lost at home for the first time in 33 years on Saturday, beaten 3-2 by Congo in the shock result of the first round of group ties.
