Nigeria/Malawi: Malawi Brace for Nigeria 'Tricks'

Malawi say they are bracing for any 'tricks' by Nigeria ahead of next month's 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier.

The southern African nation has also offered their players a 'special bonus' to beat the Super Eagles.

Nigeria hold a two-point lead going into the final group game, and need only a draw to reach the play-offs, while Malawi require an outright win.

And the Malawians have been talking tough, now Football Association of Malawi President Walter Nyamdilu Manda says everything will be done to ensure victory.

"We are making all efforts to ensure that our preparations for the game against Nigeria go on smoothly," he said.

"We are making arrangements that will help our players to travel safely and also not be affected from any tricks that the hosting country may apply before the clash. "The association also though it wise to give the players a special bonus if they beat Nigeria".
