Hi there! I’m Chris Lister, an Englishman and avid Elephants fan, currently living in Singapore. I’ll be blogging on Ivory Coast football for the ElephantsOnline team (your one-stop-shop for the Ivory Coast national football team).
I will be adding opinions based on the latest news and events from the Elephants’ training camp at the Cup of Nations. The blog started during the 2010 World Cup and is back to give you the latest news on team progress, preparation, player analysis, squad news, the team’s past tournament performances, analysis on Zahoui’s approach and match reports.
After a shaky African Nations Cup in January, team Ivory Coast will go to South Africa with the knowledge that not only do they possess the most prolific goal scorer in the English Premier League (Didier Drogba) heading the attack, but they also host a star-studded and flamboyant group of footballing individuals (Toure boys, Salomon Kalou, Gervais Yao “Gervinho” Kouassi and Arthur Boka to name a few) ready and willing to show the world what they can do on the pitch.
I hope you find the blog useful, and that it helps you to stay updated with Les Elephants’ performance prior, during, and after the CAF Cup of Nations.
