EQUATORIAL Guinea coach Gilson Paulo says it will be unacceptable to lose to Chipolopolo despite his team having never played in an Africa Cup tournament.
Paulo’s side are making their Africa Cup debut after qualifying for the tournament as co-hosts of the event with Gabon from January 21 to February 12.
The two teams are drawn in Group A and will meet in Malabo on January 29 in their final preliminary stage game.
Other teams in the Group A are Senegal and Libya.
Paulo told a local on-line publication, Guineasoccer24 that he has been monitoring Chipolopolo’s Africa Cup preparatory games and his conclusion was that Zambia might as well be the weakest team in the group.
