Zambia AfCON fact box

 

Zambia had to scramble for a coach just weeks before qualifiers started in September when Patrice Beaumelle left to join compatriot Herve Renard with the Ivory Coast team.

Zambia turned to Janza, previously an assistant with the national team and the association’s technical director, to take over despite limited experience.

He was appointed ‘interim coach’ but has held onto the job since securing a Nations Cup finals place, even though Zambia failed to win in their first three group matches.

At club level his only coaching job was at local club Zesco United when they were in the second division.
