Chipolopolo boys triumph!



Zambia’s Chipolopolo stars are the 2012 African Champions after beating Côte d'Ivoire 8-7 on penalties. This was a scintillating victory after a hard fought 120 minutes of play, followed by a round of nail biting penalties. Kolo Toure and Gervinho failed to find the target for the Elephants as Zambia's Rainford Kalaba also fluffed his opportunity. Zambia's victory was secured when Stoppila Sunzu converted the magic kick.

This is Zambia’s first win of the Africa Cup of Nations title. History in the making! Congratulations to the coaching staff, players and football administration. I'm so very excited for this much awaited moment. Memories of this day will live long.

Congrats to your people...We Somalis were supporting them wholeheartedly. You can see the videos I recorded while watching it at a cafe shop. Here's my blog... myhajj.blogspot.com

Congrats! This is also a win for Zimbabwe and Malawi (we were once, one country you know). An emotional victory for Zambia, after the tragedy of '93.
