"Currently sitting in 18th position on the World Rankings*, Zambia will make just their second Netball World Cup appearance at NWC2015.
Known as the ‘Chepolopolo’ back home in central Africa, Zambia made their debut World Cup appearance across the Tasman in 1999, when they finished 17th out of 26 participating nations in Christchurch, New Zealand.
Zambia booked their spot in Sydney after finishing second behind Uganda in the African Qualification tournament which was held in Botswana in 2014.
Zambia are one of four African nations that will contest NWC2015; along with Uganda, fifth world-ranked Malawi and sixth-ranked South Africa will also be making the trip to Sydney in August.
*Rankings based on the International Netball Federation’s (INF) current World Rankings as of April 2, 2015."
From Netball world association site. What the fuck is netball, even? Why'd you have to drag me into this, rio?http://www.kawowo.com/media/k2/items/ca ... eda5_L.jpg

FT: Uganda 74-38 Zambia
Making a first Indoor Netball World Cup appearance, the Uganda She Cranes started strongly, getting out to an early 22-10 first quarter lead and did not look back.
The She Cranes won the next three quarters 18-11, 15-9 and 19-8 to beat their Zambian counterparts 74-38 at Netball Central.
Prolific Goal Shooter and skipper Peace Proscovia led the way for She Cranes with 56 goals and a pair of assists. Goal Attack Racheal Nanyonga backed up Proscovia with 10 goals and 7 assists.

What I can glean is, that Zambia are just happy to be there, suck, and most of all, they play some rando shitty game which I could not care less about, no offence.
I mean, seriously, if I can watch Kevin de Bruyne score with the outside of his foot and even a Lord Bendtner cameo is in the cards, then it means only one thing: The German professional soccer season has started, and until the 4th of September that's all I care about.
Still, doe, I'm happy to have gotten this assignment and am honored that you value my opinion on sports.
