The Zambian national football team, Chipolopolo’s hopes to feature at this year’s finals of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) are finally over.

The Copper Bullets, as the Chipolopolo are affectionately known had girded for battle hoping that their neighbors, Warriors of Zimbabwe would be disqualified by FIFA.

FIFA had given Zimbabwe an ultimatum to put its house in order or face disqualification over government interference in football matters.

This came after the Zimbabwean government, through the Sports and Recreation Commission suspended Zimbabwe Football Association ZIFA board on corruption charges.

According FIFA statutes governments should not interfere in football matters.

Meanwhile, the Warriors are in action today, at 2pm against the Senegal’s Lions of Teranga, denting Zambia’s hopes.
