A refreshed-looking Zambia came into the 2015 Africa Cup hoping that their revamped team without veterans Christopher Katongo, Jacob Mulenga and James Chamanga would have a change of fortunes after their 2013 failure to defend the title when they made a first round exit.
However, the ghosts of two years ago returned to haunt Zambia in Equatorial Guinea this year where they failed to replicate their 2012 form that fueled them to a debut Africa Cup triumph three years ago.
Zambia exited the 2015 edition at the preliminary stage after picking up just two points from three games to finish bottom of Group B.
Chipolopolo squandered their lead’s in their opening two games drawing 1-1 with DR Congo before losing to Tunisia in their penultimate game when the latter rallied from one-nil-down at halftime to win 2-1.
Not even their scoreless draw against Cape Verde in the final game could save Zambia from an early flight back to Lusaka to cap another disappointing Africa Cup after they were favored as one of the top two to advance from Group B.
