  1. According to FIFA site Zambia will have 553 points in February. Is that because they still count friendly vs Angola they gonna exclude in Feb ?

  2. Yes, in the prognosis-tool FIFA still counts this match and also the friendly Tanzania-Zambia (22/12/2012 1:0) that will also be excluded in February.
    Zambia will have 591 pts in Feb.
