Throwback Thursday: Match highlights Zambia v Zaire 1974 AFCON final
This week marks 42 years ago, Zambia played in perhaps one of the most memorable Africa Cup of Nations finals ever.
The KK 11 battled in Egypt against neighbors Zaire in the final of the 1974 tournament that was played over two games after the two teams drew 2 – 2 in the first game only for the match to be replayed two days later on 14th March, 1974.
Amos Mumba –
The prominent thing with this generation was the passion with which they played.Carrying their own boots to training, sleeping on single mattresses in camp, washing their set of jersey for the next game and just the sheer attitude of never say die! The other thing was their stamina! They had a collective physical presence that would send shivers in your spine! Even the shortest of them all like Kaizer Kalambo, Milton Muke packed such stockiness that one would need a bulldozer to dislodge them from the ball.
