chipolopolo liftes afcon trophy.jpgZambia has lifted the Africa Cup of Nations trophy after beating Cote d’Ivoire 8-7 on penalty shoot-out.

The game had ended goalless in regulation time and went into extra time.

It was a heartbreaking end for Ivorian skipper, Didier Drogba, who missed a penalty in normal time.

Chipolopolo were inspired by the loss of the 1993 Zambian team after a plane crash close to the venue of the final in Libreville. They won the trophy for the first time.
