Best Pix Of The African Cup Of Nations 2012
The African Cup Of Nations tournament was hosted by Gabon and Equatorial Guinea from January 21st to the 12th of February. Teh African Cup Of Nations tournament always brings with it some exciting football and colorful fans. After all the group stages it was up to the Ivory Coast, with all it's European based players, to take on outsiders Zambia. After 120 minutes of regular play and a score of 7-7 in the penalty shoot out it was up to Zambian player Sunzu to score the winning goal and give Zambia it's first ever African Cup Of Nations title. It was an emotional win, not just becasue it was their first major trophy, but also because it was won in the town of Libreville. In 1993 a plane carrying the Zambia national football team crashed in Libreville killing al 30 passengers on board and effectively leaving Zambia without a national football team. Well done Chipolopolos and we hope to see you at the 2014 World Cup. Join TotallyCoolPix on Facebook and Twitter or join our Flickr Group.
