Champions Zambia were held to a 1-1 draw by 10-man Ethiopia in an eventful Group C opener at the Africa Cup of Nations in Nelspruit.

Zambia striker Collins Mbesuma opened the scoring on half-time, after being played in by Isaac Chansa.

Waliya Antelopes striker Adane Girma drew his side level after the break, with a clinical right-footed strike, reports the BBC.

Saladain Said earlier missed a penalty for the Ethiopians, before keeper Jemal Tassew was sent off for a wild tackle.
