Zambia have gone out in the first round of five of the last six Africa Cup of Nations finals, having qualified for the event at all in 2004.

It is a frustrating run for a country that has a proud history in the tournament, though they have yet to put their name on the winners trophy yet, despite some close shaves.

They were runners-up in the 1974 competition, losing in the final to Zaire after a replay, and followed that up with another runners-up finish in 1994, the year after a tragic plane crash had killed 18 members of the playing squad.

There have also been some semifinal placings (1982, 1990 and 1996), but recent history has not been kind to Chipolopolo.
