Mulenga celebrates his goal
Zambia held Tunisia to a 1-1 draw in their opening game in Group D in the African Cup of Nations.
Zambia threatened a shock when Jacob Mulenga gave them the lead after 19 minutes.
However, Tunisia levelled matters five minutes before the break when Zouheir Dhaouadi found the net.
Zambia missed a number of chances in the second half to take all three points.
Rainford Kalaba had the best chance in the 69th minute when he rose to meet a superb deep cross from Christopher Katongo but directed his free header into the ground when he should have scored.
Zambia thought they had won the game when substitute Emmanuel Mayuka headed home, but his effort was ruled out for offside.
