Malawi 2-1 Congo DR: Mwafulirwa grabs brace

BLANTYRE, Oct 11 (Reuters) - Sweden-based striker Russell Mwafulirwa scored twice in the second half to hand Malawi a 2-1 victory over the Democratic Republic of Congo in their World Cup qualifier on Saturday.

The result ensured second place for Malawi in African zone

Group 12 but they will have to wait until the end of the

weekend's full programme of qualifiers to confirm their

progress to the final phase of the 2010 World Cup preliminaries.

Congo, who as Zaire were the first black African side to

reach the World Cup finals in 1974, were eliminated after

finishing third.

The visitors took an early lead after a powerful long range

shot from Lomana LuaLua in the 12th minute. Mwafulirwa equalised

early in the second half and then notched the winner eight

minutes from time.
