Salima-based football outfit, MAFCO FC, has ruthlessly sent packing Mighty Mukuru Wanderers in the 2023 FDH Cup to book their slot in the finals following their 1-0 victory at the Kamuzu Stadium on Saturday.
Their captain, Paul Ndlovu scored the only vital goal of the match in the first half which the soldiers defended jealously until referee Mwai Msungwama blew the final whistle.
End of the road for the Nomads! Their hopes and focus should now be probably on the tricky TNM Super League and other cups including Airtel Top 8 Cup and Castel Challenge Cup.
As it is, Mafco will wait for the winner between FCB Nyasa Big Bullets and Dedza Dynamos who meet in another thrilling semifinal.
