The team has three Africa Cup of Nations final appearances to its credit. They are the current holders of the the title, winning in the 2012 final against Ivory Coast.
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 scored a hat-trick in a 4-0's win over Italy in the 1988 Olympic tournament and he played for a number of clubs in Belgium, Holland and Mexico.
They have won the COSAFA (Confederation of South African Football Associations) Cup three times.
