Like a true professional, Nyirenda flicked the ball up with his left foot, before taking it down with his chest.

After managing to complete two keepy uppys, the coach fell dramatically over a water cooler as the ball dribbled out of his reach.

He had to pull off a kart-wheel like manoeuvre to avoid getting grass stains on his suave suit.

Once he was back on his feet, he smiled and applauded his own error.

Nyirenda’s input appeared to inspire his side, with Patson Daka scoring the opener just ten minutes later.

However, Andre-Drank Zambo Anguissa equalised before the break with a long-range effort.

In the 65th minute, Brian Mwila regained the lead for Zambia following some clever build-up play from Nyirenda’s men.

But the home side’s lead was crushed in the 92 minute, with Yaya Banana scoring a late header to snatch a late point for Cameroon.
