Kennedy Mweene, Zambia’s Goalkeeper was a hero at the Chipolopolo Boys second encounter at the AFCON 2013 tournament against Nigeria.
Mweene saved a penalty in the 25th Minute of the first half and later in the 85th minute scored a penalty to equalize and keep the country’s hope at AFCON.

The Zambian team was down after Nigeria’s Emmanuel Emenike scored in the 56 minutes and silenced the over joyous soccer fans and they thought all was over.

The match ended 1 – 1 meaning the two teams now have two points each. This keeps alive Zambia’s qualification to the second round at the tournament depending on the outcome of the Ethiopia, Bukinafaso game.

The results mean that the Chipolopolo Boys will have to win the next match against Bukinafaso next week on Tuesday.
