The Malawi National Women’s Football team have been drawn against Zambia in the qualifiers of the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations following a draw done at the CAF Headquarters in Cairo Egypt.
The Scorchers will host Zambia in the first leg with the return leg set in Lusaka between 7-15 June.
Coincidently, the last time Malawi took part in the AFCON Qualifiers they played Zambia losing 9-4 on aggregate for the 2012 AFCON campaign.
The AFCON qualifiers were cancelled last year due to COVID-19 with Malawi set to play Eswatini.
The last time the two teams met was at last years’ COSAFA Championship with Malawi coming out 1-0 winners.
Commenting on the draw Scorchers assistant coach Andrew Chikhosi described it as fair draw.
“It is an interesting match considering our rivalry with Zambia. They have dominated us for quite so long but our victory at the COSAFA last year is an indication that we are improving and can always do better.
“It’s a match with two legs and hence we all have equal opportunities to do well. Critical is to win the home match,” said Chikhosi.
