Zambia goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene, a noted penalty saving and taking specialist, scored from the spot to salvage a 1-1 draw against Nigeria here on Friday. 

Zambia's goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene (R) celebrates after scoring a penalty on January 25, 2013 during an Africa Cup of Nations 2013 group A football match against Nigeria at the Mbombela stadium in Nelspruit. Mweene, a noted penalty saving and taking specialist, scored from the spot to salvage a 1-1 draw against Nigeria here on Friday.

Mweene's late heroics in this Africa Cup of Nations Group C clash cancelled out Emmanuel Emenike's goal with Nigeria's John Obi Mikel failing to convert a first-half penalty.
