Today was the final of the African Cup of Nations 2012 between Zambia and Ivory Coast. Look away now if you want to avoid the outcome of the match!
Although I'm not sure anyone on my f-list would be watching? XD
Talk about one of the sweetest, most moving moments of football I've seen! Zambia were really fired up today as they were playing in memory of the 1993 national team that died in a plane crash in Gabon, which is where the final was being played tonight. It was a hectic game, let me tell you! One of the players, Musonda, was injured during the game and left the field crying cos he really wanted to play in this match, I think it may have been his 100th cap. :( So when his team won and were celebrating, what did his coach do?
Carried Musonda in his arms across the field so that he could celebrate with his teammates!
This tournament's had some epic moments, but I think this was my favourite. Second being The President of Gabon celebrating the national team's win by dancing with them in their dressing room. I kid you not. XD
