Zebras qualify for Africa Cup of Nations 2012

The Botswana Zebras are the first team to qualify for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), joining the hosts, Gabon and Equatorial Guinea. Botswana has never before qualified for the Africa Cup of Nations since its inception in 1957.

The Zebras beat Chad 0 - 1 (Jerome Ramatlhakwane - 52nd minute) in N’Djamena yesterday, thereby securing a place in the 2012 event. In group K, it is now up to Tunisia and Malawi to battle it out for the second ticket in group K.
The Zebras maintain their unbeaten status in group K and beat 2004 AFCON champions Tunisia both at home and away. Well done Zebras!
