“We’ll not be intimidated by the presence of Zambia, the defending champions in our group,” Keshi declared.

“I believe that every team that qualified for the Nations Cup are good and are strong contenders for the trophy. So, we’ll go back to the drawing board to study this group and fashion out a winning programme.

“I will not underrate any team. Burkina Faso were at the last edition of the Nations Cup and Ethiopia cannot be waved off like that. So, we’ll prepare for tough battles ahead,” he said.
