After a number of thwarted chances at goal, Ethiopian striker Saladin Said supplied the ball which enabled Adane Girma to score Ethiopia's first goal at the Cup of Nations in 30 years.

It's been a year now since when the Chipolopolo boys surprised Africa and the whole world.

After surprising everyone with their title-winning run last year 2012 during the Africa Cup of Nations, what can we expect from the defending champions?

The core of the team is still the same, so they should not be underestimated, but surely they do you think they can do it again?

Once again, Captain Christopher Katongo will have to lead by example. He was by far the most influential player in their trophy-winning side.

However, all teams this year for the Afcon 2013 are at their best and all team hope and are wishing to bring their best to South Africa, with no team looking down on each other.

Let's watch out as www.en.africatopsports.com brings you all the thrilling events that occur during the Africa Cup of Nations 2013 which come up in South Africa this Saturday - 19th January, 2013.
