Throwback Thusrday – Zambia v Ivory Coast (Malitoli goal)
A memorable run by Zambia at 1994 Africa Cup of Nations final in Tunisia saw the reconstituted team after the Gabon Air-crash reach the finals of the tournament only to be beaten 2- 1 by Nigeria in the finals.
In this second match of the group stage, Zambia was fresh from a goalless draw against Siera Leone a couple of days earlier and they stunned Ivory Coast to set the pace for the rest of the tournament.
Kenneth ‘Bubble’ Malitoli came off the bench to score the only goal of the match.
Zambia would three days later beat Senegal by a similar margin with a goal scored by Evans Sakala.
