Zambia goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene revealed on Sunday that he doesn’t fear Ivory Coast's world-class striker Didier Drogba, who he will face in the African Cup of Nations final on Sunday.

“Rinard (Zambia's coach) asked us to focus on our own performance when we face Ivory Coast and whether the game is easy or not, we will just play football” Mweene told reporters on Sunday.

The 27-year-old shot stopper saved a penalty kick from Ghana's Asamoah Gyan in the tournament's semifinals.

“I consider Gyan’s penalty to be the greatest save of my career and it will encourage me in the final,” he added.
