Malawi national football team the Flames is on the blink of playing its six world cup qualifying matches outside the country due to lack of facilities.

According to Confederation of African Football, Malawi and 12 other countries fell short of facilities which are fit to host such games.

Kamuzu stadium which is situated in Blantyre was the favourite to host the Flames home games due to good conditions of its pitch among other factors.

This has raised eye brows considering that the country has the magnificent Bingu Stadium in the capital Lilongwe. For a long time, Football Association of Malawi has been shunning the facility citing poor condition of its pitch and logistical hitches.

The Flames are expected to start the campaign on 8th June. They are in Group D alongside Cameroun, Ivory Coast and Mozambique.

Their first assignment will be away in Cameroun.
