Ivory Coast announce squad for final qualifier

Here’s the squad of 22 announced by Ivory Coast coach, Francois Zahoui, today for their final Nations’ cup qualifying match against Burundi on the 9th October in Abidjan. This will be something of a celebration with Ivory Coast already qualified and all matches won so far. Still for the record books it would be good to win the final match and of course preserve the clean home sheet – no-one’s scored against Ivory Coast at home since September 2005 (Cameroon).
