Zambia’s 2018 World Cup and 2019 Africa Cup qualifier opponents at the ongoing AFCON in Gabon have endured mixed fortunes.
Zambia’s 2018 Group B opponents this August, Algeria, have been eliminated from the Gabon tournament after finishing winless and 3rd in Group B with 2 points after drawing 2-2 with quarterfinalists Senegal in their final game.
The team that ended Zambia’s hopes of reaching the Gabon finals with a game to spare in the 2017 Group E qualifiers exited the tournament with one point and bottom of Group A in their debut appearance.
Zambia and Guinea Bissau are set for a grudge match in the 2019 AFCON qualifiers next year.
But wait have to until match-day-three during the weekend of September 3-11, 2018 for that grudge match when Guinea Bissau travel to Zambia.
Cameroon,against whom Zambia earned their first point in Group B in the 2018 qualifiers last November with a 1-1 away draw, have made it to the 2017 AFCON quarterfinals after labouring through Group A where they finished 2nd with two draws and a win.
