Ghana overtaking South Africa as Zambia’s biggest rivals

The 2015 African Cup of Nations starts on 17th January, 2015 with Southern Africa powerhouse Zambia gunning for a second title in 3 years.

At every tournament, there are fixtures fans always look out for and it seems most Black Stars and Chipolopolo faithful can’t wait for the Zambia versus Ghana clash but unfortunately the two sides can only meet after the quarter finals stage.

Historically for bragging rights If there’s a match the Chipolopolo Boys can’t afford to lose, it is the Southern Africa derby against Bafana Bafana, but the match against Black Stars is turning out to be ‘The Grudge’ match.

In the last four competitive matches, Zambia has beaten Ghana three times and lost once but it is that AFCON 2012 semi final defeat inflicted by an Emmanuel Mayuka second strike that hasn’t gone to well in Accra and Kumasi as many felt Zambia denied the Black Stars a fifth AFCON title.

Though the Asamoah Gyan captained side got their revenge when they  denied the Copperbullets the long awaited maiden appearance at the FIFA World Cup for the Brazil edition.

Teams are judged on how many trophies they win and when they did it, and that seems to be still haunting Ghana as their last AFCON title came about 2 decades ago in contrast to Zambia who claimed hers in 2012 though Ghana has won it four times.

With Zambia and Ghana placed in Group B and C respectively, the two countries can only meet coincidently in the semi finals or the final.

At the 1996 AFCON, Zambia beat Ghana in a 3rd/4th playoff courtesy of that Joe Bwalya thunderbolt. In terms of that tournament temperament, the Chipolopolo faithful will be hoping for that favour to continue

    Stories are sharp and nice. keep it up zamfoot. I mate a a Ghanian recently at Inters. We talked about these things. I cant wait for the games.

  2. Scotch says:

    bt i dnt thnk Ghana wl b make it through to 1/4 finals ths tym.they wl b out at grp stage.their grp is tough.

  3. Frank Nonde from Gabs says:

    The KALU FACTOR IS BACK IN TEAM SELECTION.ITS LIKE ABAKAMBA TABALILEMO WHEN THE BOY TURNED PRO. REMEMBER HOW MAYUKA WENT TO ISRAEL?ABAKAMBA UKULYA EVERYTHING NOT EVEN A SINGLE NGWEE WENT TO KABWE WARRIORS. TRY KOLA AGAINST BAFANA BAFANA BEFORE THE FINAL TEAM.

  4. Billy says:

    This AFCON will be very interesting.

  5. Kimco says:

    Wait u don’t think blackstars will make it out? How are we not favourites to come out of this grp? Algeria is grt but they have yet to play any strong african team. Senegal is grt now, well see about them. The fact that S.A is even hyped is very sad for african football. They are not even that grt….nigeria was jux bad.

  6. john says:

    I honestly feel this Algerian team is overrated I expect Ghana to give them a sound beating. Algeria is not special in fact their group at the world cup was weak. Zambia would have also beaten Korea and progressed to the 2 nd round.

    • man link says:

      The curent squad Canot beat Ghana we nid the katongoz spirit . we can’t even bring the troph.we nid playaz who can go throw the mensaz,kole tule ,sow bamba and other tough difendaz.

  7. paradox says:

    if there is one thing ghanains hate is wat zamfoot has written. to them us being there rivals means putting us on the same level as them. they hate that.

  8. Seto says:

    In Africa,there is only one rivalry.ghana/Nigeria
    SA may be rivals to Zed but that is only a southern African affair.
    We love Zambia,in fact I wear a green and orange for my morning jogging and admire lubambu musonde.
    We all look forward to a great tournament
    We’ll miss Naija at the tourney.
    Viva Africa.

  9. Africa Unite says:

    Zambia will be exiting to watch as usual.. My only concern is defense.. Sunzu not at his best, with Nyambe Mulenga Injured.. Am worried. Ghana should emulate S.A , Zambia and Cameroon who do not play Names…..I Think S.A and Zambia will represent southern africa well..ESP S.A..viva Africa..

  10. This is a big blow to the face of my sister nation GHANA….. Since when has ZAMBIA been a football rival to GHANA?????? Is ZAMBIA a football nation???? seems the 2012 trophy they won has gotten over their flat big heads. A trophy won after consultation with spirits at da coast of GABON…… Go GHANA goooooo.. Win da trophy for NAIJA.

  11. BCUBE,,GH says:

    THIS IS WHAT WE CALL IN GHANA “CHEAP REPORTAGE”. HOW CAN ZAMBIA AND GHANA BE RIVALS OR U DONT UNDERSTAND THE MEANING OF THE WORD RIVALS. HOW CAN A COUNTRY WHICH CANT BOAST OF EVEN 3 FIFA OR CAF ORGANIZED TOURNAMENT TROPHIES BE A RIVAL TO GHANA .
    WHAT EVEN MAKES YOU PEOPLE THINK THAT YOUR INDIA , PSL AND CHINA NOMINATED TEAM CAN STAND THE MIGHTY BLACK STARS. GO AND ASK GERMANY BEFORE YOU AMATEURS COMPARE YOURSELVES TO GHANA TO THE EXTEND OF YOU PEOPLE THINKING YOU CAN BEAT GHANA. THE PREVIOUS LOSES AGAINST U AMATEURS WERE “A MISTAKE”.

  12. lipton says:

    zambians dont u ever compare urself to Ghana is a big disgrace to us,u can never even compare zambia to SA it seems ur ghost trophy in 2012 has gotten into ur flat heads WTF

    • Luapula Fish says:

      Surely its an embarassment to compare Ghana to Chipolopolo,a team without silver ware in the last 30 years .Last won the tournament when it was less competitive and few teams participated . Even in Ghana ,Zambia played a better game than Zambia ,the only reason we could not qualify is because of relaxed attitude against small teams . On both legs Zambia was by far a better team .The only thing good at Ghanian players is physicality and cheap talk

  13. BCUBE,,GH says:

    WONDERS LL NEVER END. ” RIVALS TO ZAMBIA”. WHAT AN INSULT.

  14. Gh Boi says:

    Aww I’m hurting deep down inside of me….Gh/zed rivalry? oh how the mighty have fallen…to the extent that Zambia can say they are Gh’s biggest rivals…smh aww aww aww

  15. Paradox incarnated says:

    Oh Zambia : your egos are elevated by comparing yourselves to Ghana. What pedigree do u have in soccer. BIG MOUTH.
    Show some achievements – not only the 2012 Afcon which u won by mistake. It is your first and last . Don’t expect anything with the porous and spongy defence you have. Cape Verde is waiting to tear u into pieces.
    Do u guys remember how the unknown Lesotho put the break on you re the World Cup? Still you have the effrontery to call yourselves GIANTS OF SOUTHERN AFRICA. You are not even dwarfs or midgets
    All your wins were at home. Mozambique humbled you. If not bribery for your home games, u would not even have qualified.
    Stop comparing yourselves to the West Africans for even your KENNETH KAUNDA was a pupil, student of the great KWAME NKRUMAH.

  18. paradox says:

    zamfoot u have jst provoked demons with that story

  19. Positive Thinking says:

    Lol. I saw this coming. These Ghanaian fans like to take things personally. Their coming here just proves Zamfoots point. Never has there been any team we have played that has taken defeat to heart as much as Ghana. From the microphone assault, and fake claims of being attacked by a police officer at Levy. The continuous reporting of Zambian football on Ghanasoccernet to the current exchanges being brought forth by this article.

  20. Positive Thinking says:

    Not to forget our farcicle training in the parking lot. Oh and the many articles about players who labeled Herve Renard a physical trainer and not an assistant in his time with Ghana.

    The reason Zamfoot is saying this is simple; when Zambia and Ghana play these days. Things are personal. This was something we only reserved for South Africa. Back in the day, when we played SA…the thought of losing was never entertained, especially if we played them at home. Now those feelings have crossed over to Ghana. Its not about level, its about the emotion and passion that comes with these games.

  21. lipton says:

    we dnt ve any passion playing with amateurs like zambia,niger,lesotho nd da rest we only have passion when we are playing against big soccer nation and unfortunatley zambia is not one,even common whatsapp messenger does not recognise ur country so ur flag is not on whatsapp how much more football WTF

  22. BCUBE,,GH says:

    @POSITIVE THINKING , WHAT FEELINGS ARE U TALKING ABT HERE. U THINK YOUR AMATEUR COUNTRY ZAMBIA IS MORE PASSIONATE N EMOTIONAL ABT FOOTBALL THAN GHANA ,RIGHT. WHAT A FUNNY STATEMENT. U CAN NEVER COMPARE UR COUNTRY TO GHANA IN ALL ASPECTS OF THE GAME.GO AND BRAG TO DJIBOUTI AND TANZANIA BCOS THEY ARE UR COEQUALS. THANK U. MERRY CHRISTMAS

  23. paradox says:

    @positive thinking. the 2012 defeat still pains them. remember, they were coming from a strong performance in the 2010 worldcup. they felt untouchable, infill Zambia brought them bak to earth twice in a row.

  24. paradox says:

    even if they belittle us. they know wat we r capaBabel of doing wen we meet them again

  25. rascozy says:

    I have been away for awhile but this article has brought me back.Mr writer thank you for the good work done at least your time and energy used needs to be appreciated. However if the analogy you are using is something to go by then Zambia’s biggest rivals should be Sudan and Lesotho.

  26. lipton says:

    zambians r just funny

  27. the minnows says:

    wat the fuck i cant believe this

  28. the minnows says:

    this is like a spiit on the face then it means uganda can also be rivals to ghana

  29. the minnows says:

    for your information go an google the world greatest rivaries in the world and ther u will see ghana an nigeria fall in from 1 to 10. when it comes to the whole africa ghana an nigeria is the most intense and greatest in africa and number 1 before the other teams coms on board

  30. the minnows says:

    so wat the fuck ar u guys talking about

  31. paradox says:

    all you ghanain dull heads. wat zamfoot is saying is that. if there was a country Zambia considered a rival and did not want to lose to was south Africa. now this has changed if there is a country that Zambia doesnt want to lose to it’s Ghana. it doesnt mean we r putting ourselves on yo level. it means wen we meet we will give u a tough fight, so underate us at your own peril. u yourselves know that very well.

  32. paradox says:

    by the way wen was the last time Ghana beat Zambia at afcon?

  33. the minnows says:

    creche thinkers we can never be rivals u guys ar full of jokers

  34. the minnows says:

    the world take u has jokers who in his right scences would say such commenent fools u are rivals to sudan not ghana till the end of time

  35. lipton says:

    jux leave dem is a disgrace to argue with zambians

  36. Uncle Bobs says:

    Ghanaian brothers chill granted, u’ve achieved mu than us in soccer but fact remains that we’re your boggie team and for that reason makes the rivalry interesting. Fact allso remains that u’ve found it easier to beat Nigeria than u have Zambia. Paradox-last time Ghana beat Ghana (Rashid, Lamptey, Amankwa, Abedi Pele etc) beat us at Afcon was 1992. Prior to that they also beat us in 1978 in the opening match of the tournament they hosted and won beating dreaded Uganda Cranes then 2-0. We actually led them courtesy of an Obby Kapita goal before they got two “suspicious” goals to win 2-1!

  37. paradox says:

    thanks uncle bobs. we need to beat them again so as to shut them up.

  38. Bruce says:

    Hahaha Zambians talk too much

  39. Seen from afar says:

    I dont see the sense in this article to just bring the Ghanian brothers out of the wood work. Whats the point of this article seriously.

  40. Don says:

    Don’t worry guys,this time it will be Singuluma who will show’em the exit door.

  41. Naked goal says:

    People of ghana and their black magic stars will never swallow their pride. Anyway,they say the truth pains,I agree with this saying 100% . 4 trophies won when only 4 teams took part in the competition.

  42. LeBron James says:

    @ Naked goal, bro I didn’t want to retort on this article at all, but I have to answer you. Anytime there’s an increase in a number of competiters in a tourney, it’s because they wanted to make it easier for other teams to make it there. If you were great enough at that moment, then you should’ve made it through to the final four. Research and figure out why the world cup was increased to 32 countries and I won’t have to open my mouth anymore. Compare taking the BEST four students out of a class with the BEST 16. Who’ll be more lucky to make the cut?

  43. Don says:

    Nah,CAF was forced to bcos half of the continent was still under colonial rule resulting in a few independent countries competing.At times it was just a matter of volonteering and you find yourself in the semi-final.Cheap competition if you were to ask me.

    Zambia using Ghana’s name to get to the top!!

    Nobody knows Zambia unless u mentioned that, the country that beat THE BLACK STARS in afcon 2012 to lift the fluke cup!! Lol

  45. Eddie-dorc says:

    Ghana z a pathetic team..they cant beat Zambia heard on..luk they made us travel on road from accra to khumasi which far in kms..they denied us 2 train on the pitch..they made us train at a car park..come on u pathetic Ghana team beat us straight on that’s when we ll give u mch needed pathetic respect u claim..underate us at yo own peril u pathetic Ghana saporters..

  46. Billy says:

    For me, I decided to keep quiet and don’t comment so as not get involved in unnecessary arguments which will not take us anywhere. AFCON, is around the corner. Lets see who goes home first.

  47. Nazo says:

    Even if you call me idiot the fact is,Nigeria is the only west African country with a good record against Zambia at the moment.

  48. kwarcee says:

    seriously,GH shdnt treat these star-gazers with kidgloves again,just some accident/mistake wins nd luk at the way they r jumping all over the place like creche kids gifted with toffees,zambia rivals to GH?,who made this crechelike thinking out,ABSURDITY to the highest order.

  49. mandingo says:

    Useless Ghanaian team!! Zambia fears no team! With the current crop of youngsters we have, we will be walloping them sooner than later.
    Our U20 team can beat all teams in Africa.

    • al idi amin al gaddafi says:

      U look like a white thrash!! Lol

    • Paradox incarnated says:

      Nonsense. Your senior team was beaten by unknown Lesotho to deny u from the World Cup .
      All your wins(except Mozambique ) were at home. DO U KNOW WHY? Bribing referees at home.
      Won some World Cup , be it under zero and the world will begin to know you. ZAMBIA IS A NO SHOW INTERNATIONALLY
      Mention Ghana, Nigeria, Cameroon Ivory Coast and a kid on Mexico, Bosnia,Bahamas Guyana Chile and England will dutifully inform u of their soccer prowess. Say Zambia and these same kids will ask u WHERE IS THAT?
      Grow up. Mature by qualifying for the dorks cup.

    zambia football is run by a bunch of amateurs. i’ll take four trophies against one any day.

    like it has bin said, lets see who will go home first.

  53. lipton says:

    useless chipolopolo team dat has only one major trophy in their cabinet except low level cosafa cup wat a shame

  54. al idi amin al gaddafi says:

    Thinkkng about mediocrity afcon whiles BIG BALLERA ARE THINKING ABOUT THE GREATEST HUMAN THEATRE ON EARTH CALLED THE WORLDCUP!!

    No serious football nation with serious ambitions ll take afcon serious because even the FIFA under 20 is more prestigious than this bogus competition!!

    Is far better to win the FIFA under 17 or 20 than afcon as those two are more recognizable than this archaic afcon!!

    I guess, it ll take Zambia another half a century to qualify to the WC cuz three free FIFA points cldnt help!! Lol

    Losers!!

  55. Naked goal says:

    @Le Bron James,The truth is Ghana won the 4 trophies because the competition was not like this time. You win one game then you are in the finals,that was not a competition, that is why Ghana get booted in the semi finals. Ghana are a good side but do not underrate other teams,you have some of the best players on the continent but you have failed to win,why ? Because your players feel like they have won it already,only to realize when they are out of the competition.If you think you are much better than others why stay for two decades without an AFCON trophy ?

  56. muliokelaa!! says:

    Ghanians re jst boasting ebola infected bats…for 23yrs u ve wastinh tax payers money…u ve pathetically represented africa at the world cup bcoz of yo poverty and corruption in yo country…no one admires yo poor country.infact it was an era.our current rivals as zed is Brazil coz of the fluke goals that oscar and jo scored or mweene..

  57. OXYGEN says:

    lolz look at a zambian calling Ghana names.Like seriously. Initially I even thought Zambia is a name of a zoo until recently. Zambia is not a recognized country for fuck off.You people are even ruled by a white man.How sad!!! Hahaha ZoMBIA……..

  58. Seto says:

    England’s last major trophy was won in 1960s.
    A world up win and subsequently an European triumph
    The three lions have since struggled to annex a trophy
    But Yes they pride themselves in these ancient achievements
    Does that make Greece or Lithuania their co- equal?
    Did Zambia participate in those tournaments that Ghana won those four ancient trophies?
    We all live to see when Zambia wins another trophy
    You don’t insult a crocodile before crossing the river……a word to the wise.

  59. Pachifentelo says:

    To be honest, there is nothing to write home about Ghana. Ghana is just a useless team and not as good as people think. To me strong teams in Africa are the likes of Cameroon, Nigeria, Egypt, etc. Ghana is useless. Ask me why, and I will tell you.

    useless people supporting a useless chipolopolo side which has only 1 trophy in their cabinet

  70. Naked goal says:

    4 ancient trophies = to 1 modern trophy. I would rather have 1 modern trophy than 4 useless ancient trophies.

  71. lipton says:

    win a fifa organise tournament nd comeback here as at now we r not co equald

  72. tony mash says:

    ZAMBIA AND GHANA BELONGS IN THE SAME CLASS. WE ALL WON AFCON AND WHAT DIFFERS IS TIME AND NUMBER OF TROPHIES.GHANA WON IT DURING THE HEY DAYS WHEN OTHER COUNTRIES WERE FIGHTING FOR INDEPENDENCE.ZAMBIA HAVE A RECORD A RECORD OF PLYING INTO THE FINALS FOR THREE TIMES AND WON IT ONCE.IF MY MEMORY SAVES ME WELL ZAMBIA HAVE FIVE OR FOUR MEDALS INCLUDING ONE GOLD THEY WON AT AFCON.ALL AFRICA THEY ALSO HAVE TWO OR THREE MEDALS.ZAMBIA UNDER 23 WAS THE FIRST TO REACH QUARTER FINALS AT OLYMPIQUES. THIS YEAR ZAMBIA IS LIKELY TO WIN TEAM OF THE YEAR AWARD FOR THE TREMENDOUS IMPROVEMENT.THEY SHOULD WIN ALL THEIR FRIENDLIES BEFORE AFCON.FOR WHAT ZAMBIA HAD ACHIEVED THEY QUALIFY TO BE A POWER HOUSE IN AFRICA.LASTLY THEY QUALIFIED 18 TIMES WHICH IS VERY DIFFICULT TO ACHIEVE.

  73. tony mash says:

    THE FIERCE RIVAL BETWEEN ZAMBIA AND DARK STARTED IN 1996 WHEN THEY WERE BEATEN FIGHTING FOR BRONZE.THEY ARE VERY STUBBORN INDEED.CHIPOLOPOLO WENT ON TO ADD SALT ON AN OPEN WOUND WHEN THEY THOUGHT IT WAS RIGHT TIME TO WIN A MODERN TROPHY.

  74. tony mash says:

  76. Paradox incarnated says:

    OH ZAMBIA: or northern Rhodesia? You have qualified 18 times to Acon and u are counting your achievements?no doubt Kenneth David Kaunda ruled you as pigs for 37 years.
    Uruguay won the first World Cup and it is still part of the record. How. Many teams were at the first World Cup? How many African countries were there? Just live on your ignorance and be versed in naming trophies by the decades in which they were won. There are some persons like paradox who are not teachable. They will live in their stupidity till the Kingdom of God is established in Southern RHODESIA. May the good Lord have mercy on this nation which harbours all such nonentities , AMEN.

  77. Naked goal says:

    Uruguay don’t make noise becoz they know that they won the trophy when very few teamz participated. Even in Africa,it is only ghana that make noise out of ancient trophies. All teams that won ancient trophies do understand that these trophies in your record are as good as nothing.

  83. the minnows says:

    hahahahaha i see now ,sooo during those days u wer called the bush men of africa,practicing hunting and gathering,and trying to invent hoes and axes.paradox u can help mee i heard during those days u guys had no water so there is a prticular plant root that stores water tthat ur source of water right. u no history don lie indead u guys ar the bush men af africa.when those days ghana was at the world map representing africa.

  84. OXYGEN says:

    When GHANA was winning cups, zambians were still living on trees searching for bananas .How on earth can u common poor Zambia to ALMIGHTY GHANA? That’s not logic.One funny think is……as a black nation their president is white..hahahaha it tells how dumb and useless you people are.I didn’t know Zambia until recently.
    I think the blue print of the African map was made from the heard of zambians.I DONT knw whether its due to the fact that there are countless mountains in southern Africa.Your heads are like shape of mountains. Scary n ugly.Never seen any lightskinned zambians before too.They are as dark as midnight.

  86. positive thinking aka realist says:

    Ghanaians, the fact that you are still coming here in droves shows that Zamfoot is really onto something. No one has stated that we are on your so called level. This article is about how emotionally charged our encounters have become. You can keep your rivalry with Nigeria, because we are not interested in it. Especially if it helps you sleep better at night. The only thing I want is for Zambia to keep beating Ghana when we meet.

  87. OXYGEN says:

    Mention the name of GHANA and you gonna us there.

  88. OXYGEN says:

    Mention the name of GHANA and you gonna
    see us there.

  89. paradox says:

    @positive thinking. unfortunately such wise words wont do anything in making those concrete ghanain brains to understand wat zamfoot is saying.

  90. OXYGEN says:

    Mention the name of GHANA and you gonna
    see us there…..Talking about rivalry. Ghana got no rival in Africa. How can common nigeria that we’ve been molesting always be our rivals.TWEAAA

  91. Discipline says:

    I was taught at school by great Ghanian teachers,those Chemestry,Geograhy and biology sirs were real gentlemen but am so disappointed with these clowns who come on our site just to insult us.All Zamfoot said was that we are rivals not on the same level,with due respect Ghana has better and Moore talented players than Zambia but I see no reason why that should be a storm,even Scotland is rival to England but we all know they are not on the same level hence grow up that is why they are telling you off about the flat back of your heads maybe nga wali kwatako ama kobo you would have been reasoning.

    @ Discipline & Positive thinking, I want to respond to you two ‘cos I know you guys are more reasonable. Don’t blame the Ghanaians brothers, it’s your own people [ mumbi & paradox ] and what they’re saying on ghanasoccernet. Trust me, the only reason why I came to this site on my first day was to insult Zambians; then after reading several comments I discovered that people were reasonable, but the problem was just a few clowns. Brothers [Africans] I’m not even in Ghana, I’ve lived in the U.S since age fourteen in the 90s but I have fall in love with this site ever since.

SOUTH AFRICA THEY CAN BEAT YOU WITH ALL OF THE EYES CLOSED.PARTICIPATING AT THE WORLD CUP DOES NOT MEAN YOU RULE AFRICA.BRAZIL HAS NEVER LOST TO AN AFRICAN TEAM.IT SHOWS THAT THEY ARE ABOVE ALL AFRICAN TEAMS.BUT GHANA CAN LOSE TO ANY AFRICAN TEAM.WE YOU KEEP ON MAKING NOISE ZIMBABWE WILL COME AND SILENCE YOU.SHUT YOUR MOUTH .YOU TEAM IS NOT A POWER HOUSE.WHY DID YOU ALLOW EGYPT TO WILL AFCON FOUR TIMES DURING YOUR PRESENCE.ZIMBABWE, ANGOLA, DRC, SOUTH AND ZAMBIA THEY A GOOD RECORD AGAINST GHANA.ZAMBIA > GHANA

    Ghana overtaking South Africa as Zambia’s biggest rivals | ZamFoot – December 26, 2014 at 5:29 pm
    When GHANA was winning cups, zambians were still living on trees searching for bananas .How on earth can u compare poor Zambia to ALMIGHTY GHANA? That’s not logic.One funny think is……as a black nation their president is white..hahahaha it tells how dumb and useless you people are.I didn’t know Zambia until recently.
    I think the blue print of the African map was gotten from the head of zambians.I DONT knw whether its due to the fact that there are countless mountains in southern Africa.Your heads are like shape of mountains. Scary n ugly.Never seen any lightskinned zambian before too.They are as dark as midnight.

  97. tatu saad says:

    I think this guy is as stupid as an idiot Ghana of recent years had j rawlings as a president so I see no reason why shuoldnt a white or coloored person be a president in africa

  98. Coach says:

    Because of the respect I have for reasonable people like @ Positive Thinking I will not explode too much and I will emit les venom from my,mouth. @ Positive Thinking, please educate your illiterate country men who cannot do just simple googling to ascertain facts about country they compare theirs to. I do not want to.believe. that Zambia came into existence in 2012 or you only got civilised in 2012. You have participated in as many as 18 Afcon with a single trophy
    Those who says Ghana is poor a bit of education for you. Whilst zambia. Is rank amongst the poorest country in Africa with per capita income of $1700 , Ghana is in.the top ten with Per Capita Income $6000. Go to World Bank website and you will find all these or better still simple Google will do

    Yah rite,divide that by 28 million ghanains n see where it takes u

  100. Pulock says:

    In as much as much as I do agree with the writer on the issue of passion and emotions usually associated with Ghana, Zambia games especially in recent times, I equally believe that the record of Ghana in African and world football is too huge to use the term rivalry.
    One may argue that since Ghana hasn’t won the afcon for a very long time they are not worth the hype; on the other hand from afcon 2008-afcon 2013, the black stars have finished at the last four, and still remains the only team with the highest number of appearance at the grande finale with 9 or so.

  101. Pulock says:

    Luck has most often played against Ghana in most afcons just as the Dutch national team experience bad luck during major competitions.
    With Ghana’s pedigree in world football, even 2nd place finish in afcon is considered a failure.

  102. LeBron James says:

    @ Pulock, I agree with you 100%. Some people only retort within argumentative perception instead of being honest.

  103. kimco says:

    to whomever spreading lies that brazol has never been defeated by any african team….i beg to differ….cameroun defeated brazil in the confederations cup in 2003.

    also it very childish of people to go offtopic and insult eachother over football. zamfoot’s claim is right….they zambians see us as their strongest rivals now…whether it reciprocal is up for debate…but as a ghanaian i must confess zambian team give me that same feeling of “we cannot not afford to lose” nigeria however still is up there as our greatest rivals and the greatest in africa. but i think egypt and egypt may over take us cos both teams (ghana-nigeria) arent that great anymore.

    also who was dat idiot dat commented on zambia having a white president? and which fool also said ghana is so poor etc.

    grow up people.

    • BOZO says:

      GHANA HAS NEVER BEEN A THREAT TO ZAMBIA YOU IDIOTS.YO SELF HIGH ESTEEMED EUPHORHA YOU GHANA FUNS IS BASELESS COSE YO IDIOMATISED STANDERED OF RIVALRY IS ON LAVAL INSTEAD OF RECORD BETWEEN THE TWO.FUCK YOU.

  104. kimco says:

    brazil*

    egypt and algeria*

  105. GH MUMBI says:

    hahaha hahaha Zambia cannot and will never be a rivary for GREAT GHANA because we will always beat you when neccasary, the reason why Ghana don’t win afcon is because most the players think low of cup and don’t want to risk injury for their respective clubs oversea’s but as for Zambians who don’t have that sought of talent to play aboroad will kill themselves to win afcons to have a chance to go play in Europe. long story short Ghana rather loose than get their legs broken by desperate zambia

  106. Paradox incarnated says:

    After browsing through the comments l can now accept that there are indeed reasonable persons from Zambia in this forum. Why would brothers be so hateful of each other because of just about two or three Zambian misfits who harbour animosity because of a personal problem with a Ghanaian.
    Let us reason together and indulge in some form of civility & not the mystified obscurantist viiews of MUMBI, PARADOX OR BANGER – The misfits of our African Society. Aluta Continua

  107. Discipline says:

    Yes indeed people grow up the white acting president is very much Zambian born and raised hence that also makes him very African just like one Mr ,or what ever military title,Rawlings once president of our dear brothers in Ghana is of mixed race that does not make Ghanaian people stupid to have made him rule them in fact he did fine and was never locked up or accused of stolen any money as is the case with some African presidents.There is also Our very own Obama does that also make the large majority white American population stupid,the answer to that is no.So my dear brothers this is a forum for football and please let’s stick to that.

  108. GH MUMBI says:

    @Dicipline, GREAT GHANA will never appoint a white man who has no GHANAIAN BLOOD in him because only a Ghana can and has right to rule GHANA. and for a bit of a history lesson, RAWLING WAS HALF GHANAIAN WHO WAS BORN AND RAISED IN GHANA, OBAMA is HALF WHITE and HALF AFRICAN AMERICAN so he therefore has every right to lead the whites because he is also WHITE.. but in the case of ZAMBIA where this white president of yours has no blood of a Zambian or even an African is leading your country. WHO CARES IF HE WAS BORN THERE OR NOT, DO YOU THINK A WHITE MAN WILL LET A ZAMBIAN WHO HAS NO WHITE BLOOD WHATS SO EVER TO LEAD THERE COUNTRY? this why Africans are looked down apon and needs to stop. WORD TO MY FELLOW ZAMBIANS, Don’t Entertain the white man in area’s they will not entertain you, SUCH AS BECOMING PRESIDENT OF A WHITE COUNTRY BEING OF FULL ZAMBIAN BLOOD, AFRICA WAKE THE FUCK UP

  109. GH MUMBI says:

    BECOMING PRESIDENT IN AFRICA SHOULD BE LOOKED IN THE SAME WAY AS BECOMING KING OF YOUR LOCAL VILLAGE. ONLY FULL BLOOD CAN CARRY ON THE KINGSHIP OR IN THIS CASE AT LEAST AT LEAST HALF CAST WHO STILL HAVE THE BLOODLINE BUT MAYBE NOT AS STRONG. @DICIPLINE WHAT YOUR TRYING TO SAY IS THAT IF A WHITE MAN IS BORN IN ZAMBIA AND RAISED THERE HIS ENTIRE LIFE YOUR VILLAGE WILL MAKE HIM KING AND CONTROL THE VILLAGE WHEN HE IS NOT EVEN A HALF CAST…NOW YOU TELL ME WHERE THE WORD STUPIDTY LIES

  110. GH MUMBI says:

    I LOVE ZAMBIA AND ALL ZAMBIANS BUT PEOPLE LIKE MUMBI AND PARADOX FUCKING PISS ME OFF, IT AINT NUTTING BUT LOVE FROM GH, LETS MOVE ON..HOPE EVERYBODY HERE WILL IGNOR MUMBI AND PARADOX.. WE WONT LET THEM STIR SHIT UP BETWEEN THE TWO NATION. FUCK YOU MUMBI AND PARADOX ITS COZ OF PEOPLE LIKE YOU THAT HOLD AFRICA BACK FROM UNITING. FUCKING IMBISILES

  111. OXYGEN says:

    @Gh mumbi .Isn’t those two people from Zambia.The poorest nation in Africa? They don’t even have a city.No need to exchange words with Zambian.

  112. lipton says:

    haha zambia abre

  113. tony mash says:

    history can be made and broken.zambia they have potential to achieve what ghana did achieve.zambia is not as small as some of us thing.they have their own records and ghana you have yours.visit caf offices they will show youin their records that zambia won afcon,cosafa and cecafa.we were robbed by caf to have an opportunity to play at confed.in africa zambia will remain a force to reckon with.this year zambia proved to the whole continent that its a power house in african football. they did what ghana failed to do. both under 17 and under 20 qualified for AYC.Shame on you you were caught cheating fielding an under 23 player into the under 17.there is fierce rival between zambia and ghana. zambia will continue wining the battle.

  114. kimco says:

    gh mumbi…gh has had full blooded leaders for 50+ years….glad to see it working for us quite well….how are u loving the dum sor….i seem to enjoy the heat rashes quite well.

    lesson of the day…if he can do the job…deny him not with stupid and pointless principles.

    anoda lesson…leave politics out of football talks

  115. Mankind90 says:

    Look at this Zambians again. Always trying to elevate themselves to a place that they don’t deserve to be. Are you people suffering from inferiority complex? The only country in the world that is good at celebrating mediocrity.I cant stop laughing.hahahahhahahah

  116. Discipline says:

    If becoming President should be looked into then the same should be done when giving big national challengers like coaching some very prized National team, they say do not through stones if you also live in a glass house.
