Zambia, Ivory Coast name strong AFCON squads

Zambia, Ivory Coast name strong AFCON squads

Zambia coach Herve Renard on Wednesday named a competitive squad for the Africa Cup of Nations finals due to kick-off in Equatorial Guinea and Gabon in January.

Announcing the squad at a press conference, Renard, a forever optimist, declared his squad ready for the rigours of the Afcon and boasted that his team can beat anyone on any given day.

 "We can play against anybody. We can compete against anyone," Renard declared.

 "We have worked very hard these past weeks and the squad is ready for any competitor. We are focused, disciplined and working hard. We are in the final phase and now we have our final 23, he added.

Chipolopolo are currently camping in South Africa where they are due to play a depleted Bafana Bafana in a practice match.

Missing from the squad are players such as  Holland-based Jacob Mulenga who is out with a knee injury, Thomas Nyirenda,  Given Singuluma and Justine Zulu who have been left out for various reasons.

Meanwhile pre-tournament favourites Ivory Coast earlier this week named a strong squad for the tournament. Out of the provisional squad of 25, only Ukraine-based midfielder Ne Marco Taddei and French second division keeper Ibrahim Kone were dropped.

Ivory Coast were favourites to lift the title at the 2012 finals, but only Ghana and Egypt reached the finals, with the latter lifting their sixth title. Egypt are conspicuous with their absence from the finals this time around.
