About:

The Zambia national football team represents Zambia in association football and is governed by the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ).

Background:

During the 1980s, they were known as the KK 11, after founding president Dr. Kenneth Kaunda ("KK") who ruled Zambia from 1964 to 1991. After the country adopted multiparty politics, the side was nicknamed Chipolopolo, the "Copper Bullets".

The team has three Africa Cup of Nations final appearances to its credit. They were once holders of the Africa Cup of Nations, winning in the 2012 final against Ivory Coast. In addition to this 2012 cup triumph, its other memorable moments include a 4–0 victory over Italy in the 1988 Olympic football tournament in Seoul, South Korea that saw Kalusha Bwalya score a hat-trick.

After the departure of George Lwandamina in 2016, Wedson Nyirenda was appointed interim coach. As of 29 October, Nyirenda is reportedly being considered for promotion to permanent head coach.
