Although Zambia have never won the African Cup of Nations, they have been ever-present at the finals since 1974. However, they have won the COSAFA (Confederation of South African Football Associations) Cup twice. They hope to win the title for a third occasion, which would allow them to retain the trophy. In 1993, Zambian football was dealt a devastating blow, with the majority of the national team losing their lives in a tragic plane crash. Kalusha Bwalya,Zambia's favourite football son, survived the tragedy because he was not travelling with the team at the time. Bwalya played for a number of clubs in Belgium, Holland and Mexico, but called time on his playing career a few years ago and attended a coaches training course organised by the Dutch FA. He is currently dedicating his time to campaigns to prevent and fight AIDS in Africa.
