Limbikani Mzava wins battle of Malawians


Limbikani Mzava marshalled South Africa’s Golden Arrows’ defence to prevent fellow Malawians, Robert Ng’ambi and Gerald Phiri junior, from advancing to the Nedbank Cup semi-finals on Saturday.

Arrows grabbed a first-half winner through Captain, Musa Bilankulu’s header to dump out Stars, who featured Ng’ambi and Phiri in attack, at the Prince Magogo Stadium in Durban.

Phiri and Ng’ambi played the entire game whereas former Nyasa Big Bullets skipper, Chiukepo Msowoya, was an unused substitute for Arrows.


In another quarter-final, Malawian striker Atusaye Nyondo came off the bench in place of Ayanda Dlamini in the 84th, but the former Silver Strikers player could not prevent Blomfontein Celtic from losing 2-1 to Orlando Pirates on Saturday night.

Goals from Abbubaker Mobara and Thamsanqa Gabuza helped Pirates reach the semi-finals, joining SuperSport United, Chippa United and Arrows.

Mzava is expected to lead the Flames in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, whose group stage matches get underway in June.
