Zambia
The Zambia national football team represents Zambia in men’s international association football and it is governed by the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ). During the 1980s, they were known as the KK 11, after founding president Dr. Kenneth Kaunda (“KK”) who ruled Zambia from 1964 to 1991. After the country adopted multiparty politics, the side was nicknamed Chipolopolo, the “Copper Bullets”. The team has three Africa Cup of Nations final appearances to its credit, winning the 2012 tournament with a victory over Ivory Coast in the final. The team has never qualified for the FIFA World Cup finals.
