Zambia compared to Uganda cranes

Still of the view that Uganda cranes deserved to take a slot at 2013 AFCON ahead of Zambia's Chipo'lo. B4 u crucify me please I base my urguement on the following statistics of recent games:

Angola 1-1 Uganda Zambia 0-2 Sudan
Zambia 1-0 Uganda Zambia 1-0 Uganda
Uganda 1-0 Zambia Uganda 1-0 Zambia
Uganda 1-0 Ethiopia Zambia 1-1 Ethiopia
Uganda 2-0 Ethiopia Zambia 0-0 Norway
Uganda 3-0 Tanzania Zambia 0-1 Tanzania
Uganda 1-0 Kenya
Uganda 2-1 Kenya

I declare the debate open. But I feel Zambia has simply been lucky all through.

My conclusion about this game

My conclusion about this game is that Team Zambia is obviously overrated, while Team Ethiopia exceeded my expectations and made me believe this tournament is gonna be full of surprises. Thumbs up for Walya Antelopes!
