Angola Vs Malawi Preview

Angola look to come back from their miraculous draw in the opening game of the ACN against Mali


Angola were looking to start their African Cup Of Nations campaign with a win and their ideal outcome was likely to happen as the Black Antelopes were four goals ahead of Mali, but for sensational comeback from The Eagles. Stephen Keshi’s men came back from four goals to earn a vital point. Malawi’s campaign meanwhile, started in a total different direction with an unexpected three points at the expense of Algeria.

Team News

After Flavio and Gilberto recovering from their various injuries, Manuel Jose’s men looked like a fully fit side but that was till key player, Dede got injured in their first Cup Of Nations tie. Dede’s injury is expected to keep him out of Thursday nights fixture but Jose and his team will be looking to get him fit enough for at least a place on the bench. Unlike Angola, Malawi are a fully fit side after their game against Algeria.

Angola: Carlos, Djalma, Flavio, Gilberto, Kali, Mabina, Manucho, Marques, Stelvio, Xara, Zuela

    I recall a quote (but not the quoter)from a few years back to the effect that an African nation would win the World Cup within the next 50 years. I certainly hope one does.

    Thanks for making the effort to put in the preview, shame that you didn’t have more time, as it could have been very good, if you’d had the chance to expand on the team news and form and add some images as well.
    Great that you could get the team sheets and a prediction up.

    Not sure why you have decided to add the task name to all your articles, it isn’t necessary and takes away from the professional look of the team’s blog. The tasks are only relevant to the ANC FJC, and not to regular readers of the Angola blog.
