The Zambia National Team[edit]

The Zambia national football team represents the country of Zambia and is governed by the Football Association of Zambia. The side is nicknamed Chipolopolo (the Copper Bullets) as copper is one of the southcentral African nation's main exports. The team has two African Nations Cup final appearances to its credit and among its most memorable moments is a 4-0 victory over Italy in the 1988 Olympic football tournament in Seoul, South Korea that saw Kalusha Bwalya score a hat-trick.
