AFCON 2015

The 'Coupe d'Afrique' as it is officially knows, has commenced, as of the weekend that has just passed.


It has been a bit tumultuous, with health care and politics and anxiety amongst the crowds took precedence. Morocco was the playing field until the deadly Ebola outbreak took place, and the games had to be moved to Equatorial Guinea.


For me, I am biased towards Zambia because it is one of my homes.  As much as I'd like to say the Cape Verde players are pretty steamy, I cannot base my football expectations on looks versus skill.  We have a strong team in place, with Emmanuel Mayuka, (Southampton FC), Stoppila Sunzu (Sochaux) and Chisamba Lungu (Ural FC) to name just a few.  


The 2012 AFCON games were co-hosted by Equatorial Guinea and Gabon.  It was the final of that year that sent Zambia to the top and gave it it's deserved win.  They dedicated this win to the team that died in a plane crash that took place near the final's venue in Libreville, Gabon.  Therefore Equatorial Guinea is an ominous, yet hopeful place for Zambia.  We wish the team the very best of luck, and sending only positive vibes their way!


We have created AFCON polo shirts to cover the games – whether you support Zambia or not; whether you are watching this year's match or not, these are memorabilia pieces to keep.  They come in Black and White colours, and are available at The Mosi Kiosk at Manda Hill Mall (beer and football, what more can a football fan ask for?!)
