The Flames missed the chance to go top of Group F earlier in the day when

Chimango Kayira's late own-goal earned Kenya a 2-2 draw in Blantyre.

After Robin Ngalande's 46th-minute opener was cancelled out by Jamal Mohammed (52), the hosts retook the lead through Robert Ng'ambi with nine minutes remaining only for Kayira to put through his own net one minute from time.

Malawi were then at the mercy of Nigeria, who could have sealed top spot and a last-10 berth with a later victory in Windhoek, but Namibia's Deon Hotto

Kavendji had other ideas.

His 77th-minute goal caused panic before Godfrey Oboabona equalised seven

minutes from time, but Stephen Keshi's men head off to the Confederations Cup knowing a home defeat to Malawi in September will deny them the chance to reach next summer's World Cup.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
