Zambians cheer comeback from football tragedy
Friday 10 February 2012 in FIFA.com

Before the CAF Africa Cup of Nations, bookmakers regarded Zambia as underdogs set for an early exit. Now heading into the final, they're poised for a stunning comeback from one of football's greatest tragedies.

The Copper Bullets have seen off all rivals so far, setting off wild celebrations in Zambia, starting with their opening-day victory over favourites Senegal.

Now heading to the final, the nation sees their triumphs as a fitting honour for the national team that perished off the coast of Gabon on 28 April 1993, when a Zambian Air Force flight ditched into the sea, killing all 30 people on board as they headed toward a FIFA World Cup qualifier in Senegal.

"The only way to honour our heroes will by emerging victorious," said Zeddy Saileti, assistant coach at Nkana FC, a top Zambian team based in the Copperbelt town of Kitwe.

After beating Ghana to win a spot in the finals Sunday, the air in Zambia has been pregnant with expectation and excitement about the impending clash between the Chipolopolo "Copper Bullets" and the Elephants of Côte D'Ivoire.

In the capital Lusaka, replica jerseys for the Chipolopolo Boys are sold on every street of the capital and the vendors are reaping the rewards of the side's success. Whistling, honking, and blowing of vuvuzelas is almost non-stop, as some die-hard football lovers walk the strets with their faces painted in Zambia colours.

Their victories have been splashed across the front pages, even dominating the editorial columns normally devoted to politics.

After the last whistle of each match, Zambians take to the streets to celebrate the victory, in scenes last scene when Michael Sata was declared winner of the 20 September presidential elections in an upset victory.

Nkana coach Linos Makwaza and his assitant Saileti were on the national side that made it to the 1994 finals in Tunisia, only to lose out 2-1 to Nigeria. This time will be different, he said.

"It is a wonderful thing to reach the final of the Africa Cup. The team deserves it because they have played well from the beginning," Makwaza said.

Zambia is a pretty amazing underdog story so far...I hope Ivory Coast chokes again.

The tournament has been utter shit as much as I've seen although maybe it's not a big surprise considering how many third-rate footballers there are. Looking at Zambia's lineup, for example, there are practically no good players at all.

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

Congrats to Mali, their first medal at the ANC since 1972, but Ghana didn't show up today, they didn't care, not that the bronze medal means anything for Ghana, but their manager could get the sack

I think he would get the sack regardless of the result of the bronze medal match. Ghana looked very far from what was expected from them in this tournament. Very disappointing.

Well here it is, Zambia and Ivory Coast in the final's. Now if Zambia were to pull a huge upset it would have to be the near perfect tactical game Zambia has ever played. In term's of fire power Zambia is no match for the Ivorian's. Civ's attack on paper is one of the best this tournament has seen in several year's. Zambia would have to play a smart counter attacking style while being patient and absorbing the presure by Civ.

Very sad to see Musonda leaving the pitch in tears just after 10'.
