Malawi have announced Englishman Steve Constantine as their new head coach. The 44-year-old previously experienced a productive spell at the India controls, and also took charge of Nepal for a two-year period.

Constantine's immediate mission will be to steer Malawi into the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations. The Flames' qualifying campaign resumes in June when they host Morocco, before a trip to Zimbabwe for their final Group 12 match.

Malawi are currently positioned 103rd in the  FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking .
