Defending champs stumble in Africa cup

NELSPRUIT, South Africa - Zambia’s chances of emulating Egypt, Ghana and Cameroon as the only nations to retain the African Nations Cup did not look promising after a stuttering 1-1 draw against Ethiopia on Monday.

Nigeria, seeking its third title and first since 1994, also will have to improve after outsiders Burkina Faso snatched a dramatic 1-1 draw with the last kick of the game at the Mbombela Stadium.

Monday’s results meant five of the first six games in the tournament were draws, the only exception being Mali’s 1-0 win over Niger in Group B on Sunday. Reuters
