Faces of Africa – Tragedy to Triumph: The Story of Zambian Football

A tragic history turned triumphant 19 years later.
In 1993 a Zambian plane crashed into the sea 2km off the Coast of Gabon on its way to Senegal killing all passengers on board. They were headed to Dakar for Fifa World Cup Qualifier against Senegal.
19 years later Zambia national team, Chipolopolo, claimed glory by winning the 2012 African Cup of Nations at the same place where tragedy met their fellow brothers.
