Amajimbos had a chance to level matters after 32 minutes when James McFarlene picked out Mohammed Shahabodien in the box, but the latter failed to connect with the cross.

Nevertheless, the score remained 1-0 to Malawi at the halftime break.

The South Africans failed to find a leveller in the closing stages, as Malawi held on for the victory.
