The winner will join 14 other countries from the qualifiers and hosts South Africa for the finals which begins on January 19, 2013.

“On paper, Ghana is streets ahead of Malawi. We have tremendous experience in this competition,” .He told JOY Sports.
“We have a lot of achievements on our side, the benefit of history and pedigree.
“But it is very important for us to be cautiously optimistic because you can be surprised if you underrate your opponent.”
