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.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
