Zambia have shot up 28 places in the Fifa rankings, breaking into the
top 50 for the first time in eleven years after winning the African
Nations Cup on Sunday.
The Chipolopolo (The Copper Bullets) moved into 43rd spot, their
highest position since February 2001, after beating Ivory Coast on
penalties following a goalless final in Libreville.
Despite losing the decider, Ivory Coast climbed three places to 15th
and are the continent's highest-placed team. The Elephants did not
concede a goal in the tournament.
