Southampton striker Emmanuel Mayuka says no Zambia panic

Southampton striker Emmanuel Mayuka says Zambia are calm heading into Tuesday's make-or-break African Nations Cup clash with Burkina Faso, where anything other than victory could see the defending champions eliminated.

A draw might not be enough for Chipolopolo in Nelspruit, depending on how Nigeria get on against bottom side Ethiopia in the other match, but Mayuka says they are not getting carried with what may or may not happen.

The Southampton striker said in the Times of Zambia: "What pressure? It is just that people have been talking a lot but ourselves we are not feeling that pressure as we are taking each game as it comes."
