As per their promise; the Kostadin Papic led Sihlangu has made the nation proud after playing to an odd goal draw against Malawi in Blantyre at the Kamuzu Banda Stadium. This score line guarantees Eswatini a fixture against Angola in an encounter that is set for July.
The goal for the local side came from a thunderous boot of Sandile Gamedze whose shot beat Malawian shot Hopper to give jubilation and hope to the Eswatini side. The Malawian’s applied more pressure to Eswatini and on the 61st minutes they were able to find the back of the net through Mhone. AS the Malawians continued to search for the second, the Eswatini national team stood their ground more especially in defence.
As a real tactician, Kostadin Papic brought in Ndumiso Ndaba who is a defender for an offensive Sabelo Ndzinisa to enhance the defence of Sihlangu. Towards the end of the match, Malawi was pressing a lot on Eswatini however Papic’s troops stood the ground as they were able to protect the away goal advantage up until the last minute of the game. The final whistle at the 96th minute of the match was good music for the Eswatini lads and the technical bench.
