Zambia striker Emmanuel Mayuka has a very slim chance of playing any further part at the Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea through a groin injury.

The Southampton of England frontman, 24, sustained the injury during Thursday’s 2-1 defeat by Tunisia. He was stretching to reach the ball when he felt pains and was subsequently taken off on a stretcher straight to a hospital in Ebebiyin.

He is back with the team at their hotel, but faces a 50/50 chance of making further appearance at the finals.

Zambia communications manager Nkweto Tembwe has disclosed to the BBC Sport that the team doctor will decide in the next couple of days whether Mayuka will be available on Monday.

The Chipolopolo must beat Cape Verde in their final group game to stand any chance of progressing to the quarter-finals. Zambia are without a point after two rounds of matches.
