Zambia have become a permanent fixture at the Nations Cup finals, but have lost their status as potential contenders.

Kalusha Bwalya's retirement after 15 years with the team leave a hole they are still struggling to fill.

Building a side without him has been complicated by Caf banning coach Jan Brouwer.

Locally-based players have dominated the squad in the past year, with Moses Sichone and Andrew Sinkala, both regulars in the German Bundesliga, notably absent.

So Gift Kampamba and Dennis Lota are the players the others look to for inspiration.

But with Tunisia, Senegal and Egypt in the group, getting into the quarter-finals looks close to impossible.
