Tanzania beat Zambia in Dar



Herve Renard completed his assessment of local talents with a good warm up match against Tanzania which his squad lost by a solitary goal at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam.

Thanks to a Mrisho Ngassa strike just before the break, Tanzania pulled off what may go down as a famous result against the reigning African champions.

Zambia hit the upright twice and came close a number of times but could not find a way past Juma Kaseja as the hosts rallied and held on to their first half lead.

Chipolopolo return home Sunday.

Renard will then announce the 26 man squad to start the Nations Cup preparations in Johannesburg on 26 December. In between the intensive preparations for the defence of the title, Zambia will play Morocco on 8th January in Johannesburg, Norway at Levy Mwanawasa in Ndola on 12th January and Namibia on the 15th.

The kings of African football open their campaign to retain the Nations Cup title with a match against Ethiopia on 21st January before taking on Nigeria who return to the Afcon finals tournament after failing to qualify for the 2012 finals.

Chipolopolo end the group campaign against Burkina Faso - all at Mbombela.
