Mayuka goal celebration costs Zambia

Southampton striker Emmanuel Mayuka is almost certain to miss Zambia’s last group game in the Africa Cup of Nations after sustaining an injury as he celebrated a goal.

Mayuka, 24, was taken to hospital in an ambulance and is believed to have suffered a serious groin injury after falling awkwardly as he performed an acrobatic celebration during the 2-1 defeat to Tunisia.

The forward fired his side ahead just before the hour-mark but was forced off on a stretcher and then replaced a number of minutes later by Jackson Mwanza.

Zambia coach Honor Janza said his injury "looked to be very serious".
