Malawi coach Kinnah Phiri says they will ‘sweat blood’ to beat Ghana next month to qualify for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.
The Black Stars will travel to face the Flames in the second-leg of the final qualifier for the tournament to be played in South Africa.
Ghana won the first leg 2-0 in Accra last week which gives the West African a decent advantage going into the return match.
But coach Phiri says they have not given up on their chances to qualify for the finals, saying the team is capable of overturning the result.
“We have not given up. We have always come down from a defeat in our backyard and managed to qualify. We will sweat blood to get the results we need,” Phiri said.
The Black Stars are responsible for Malawi’s worst ever defeat after posting a 12-0 victory over the Flames in 1962.
