Zambia slink out of Afcon

Match report: Zambia out of Africa Cup of Nations after 0-0 draw with Burkina Faso

Posted: 29 January 2013 Time: 09:10 pm

Burkina Faso progressed to the Africa Cup of Nations quarter-finals, while defending champions Zambia are going home.

The teams played to a lacklustre goalless draw at Mbombela Stadium on Tuesday evening.

It is the first time the reigning champions have gone out in the group stage since 1990 in Algeria, when there were still just 12 teams involved.

Zambia went into the game level on points with Nigeria, who qualified to the knockout stage with a 2-0 win over Ethiopia in the other Group C match – both goals scored by Victor Moses from the penalty spot in the last 10 minutes.

It was a poor performance from Chipolopolo, who will rue their missed chances, with Collins Mbesuma and Rainford Kalaba the main guilty parties, although Clifford Mulenga also missed a half-chance late in the game.

Zambia leave South Africa unbeaten, but have not displayed the form that handed them the trophy last year.

Burkina Faso, who thumped Ethiopia 4-0 last Friday, finished top of Group C on goal difference.

T'zozo here again.

I'm celebrating the fact that Zambia are out of Afcon. I should have been sad to see our Southern African brothers knocked out bit here I am celebrating. Why ?

Because the dagga smoking FOOLS who support Chibuku Pirates declared their support for Zambia and said they don't care about Bafana Bafana just because there are more Chiefs players in BB. Now today its' another kick in their stinking asses.

MaPirates le nyile dimpya ke lona.

And please stop commenting on Bafana Bafana because Chipolopolo is YOUR national team.

Hahahahahahahahaha.............MaPirates lenyile.

To hell with ZAMBIA (KALABA, MBESUMA) & DRC, they were hailed as heros b4 the tournament started by STUPID GORILLAS who some of they turned their backs on our beloved BB just b'cos few of their favourite players are not selected...pls those GORILLAS like MOTHUSI aka MARAPO, KING and whole lot should get on that bus with ZAMBIANS & CONGOLISE they dont deserve to be in SA!!! We were told that we wont make the next round and wont score a single goal yet we did what these stupid GORILLA supported ZAMBIA & DRC couldnt do which is to qualify to the next round... thank you BURKINABES for showing those GORILLAS an exit door...
