Zambia are keen to retain their title and they seem to have the advantage. Zambia and Ethiopia have previously played each other eight times in competitive matches and Zambia holds a better head-to-head record, having recorded four wins. However, the Zambia coach, Herve Renard, claims he is determined not to underestimate the Ethiopian team, especially since the Ethiopians won the last time the two teams met.

Nigeria are relying more on youngsters, taking a long-term approach with the 2018 World Cup in view. Will this strategy stumble at the first hurdle or will the Super Eagles give a super show against Burkina Faso?
