Lister’s Lowdown: Off to a great start

Chris Lister's Lowdown

Two wins out of two for the warm-up matches in Abu Dhabi – a great start!  It was interesting to see the manager try out different combinations.  Switching Gervinho with Keita was a good call!
Salomon Kalou scored the only goal on the hour as the Elephants grabbed a well-earned victory against Libya.  This should give the team a boost of confidence before it all kicks off later this week.
Didier Drogba has shown he is still a good pick, I was starting to wonder about his age, but he looks sharp and dangerous just like he used to.
So, as we head into the cup, players will be focused, managers stressed and fans excited – bring it on!  Enjoy AFCON 2012, come on the Elephants!
