Zambian midfielder Felix Katongo has warned his team mates that Ethiopia will be a tough nut to crack at the 2013 Orange Africa Cup of Nations.

The reigning African Champions will begin their title defence against the Ethiopians on January 21 in Nelspruit and Katongo has called on his team mates not to be complacent.

“We do not need to look at say this is (just) Ethiopia because football nowadays is complicated,” Katongo said.

“You never know what will happen. I will give you an example of Cape Verde; they eliminated Cameroon.”

Ethiopia are returning to the tournament for the first time since 1982 after beating Sudan on away goal rules (5-3, 2-0) to qualify.
