Zambia prepare for Ivory Coast showdown

Copper Bullets hope to banish memory of 1993 plane crash in Gabon in which 18 of their players died.



    Africa Cup of Nations finalists Zambia have arrived in Gabon ahead of Sunday's final against Ivory Coast. 
     
    Gabon is a country associated with the darkest day in Zambian football history when a 1993 plane crash killed 18 Zambian footballers off the country's coast.

    Now the team is hoping for a fairytale ending to their run in the competition, when a new continental champion will be crowned on Sunday.
