Malawi national team
Malawi’s only previous Cup of Nations Finals appearances have been in 1984 and 2010

Malawi beat Uganda 1-0 in their final Group B qualifying match for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations – putting themselves through and sending the Cranes out.

Uganda only needed a draw from the game in Blantyre, but came away defeated thanks to Richard Mbulu’s 15th minute goal.

Instead it is Malawi who are celebrating making it to the finals in Cameroon in 2022 – only the third time they have ever qualified for the competition.

The result caps a miserable run for east African countries in qualifying, with Kenya and Tanzania also missing out.
