Zambia seek to end 2012 on high



In what is a first for Zambian football, FAZ President Kalusha Bwalya, Coach Herve Renard and Chipolopolo stars Stoppila Sunzu and Rainford “The Master” Kalaba are in the Ghanaian city of Accra for Thursday’s Glo/CAF Awards where Zambia has interest across three categories.

“Never before has Zambia had so many nominations,” said FAZ President Kalusha adding that “It’s another wonderful moment for our football with credit to the whole team.”

The reigning African champions are looking to close the year by picking up the Team of the Year award. Renard is in the running for the African Coach of the Year award while Sunzu and Kalaba hope to fend off the challenge of Egyptian Mohammed Aboutreika to win the 2012 African Player of the Year Award.

Caf reports that the expectancy and excitement has gone up a notch in the Ghanaian capital as dignitaries, players and the African football fraternities gear up for the Awards taking place Thursday night at the Banquet Hall, State House.

Globacom and Caf have outdone themselves again in lining up top acts to perform at the Awards with the musicians to include Salif Keita, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Princess of Africa Yvonne Chaka Chaka and Asem and Kwabena.

Sunzu, Kalaba and Aboutreika have been joined by fellow top players including Didier Drogba and Yaya Toure. Former Liverpool and England star player John Barnes and Anita Erskine will be the MCs on the night.
