Cote d’Ivoire vs Togo Preview:
On January 22nd Cote d’Ivoire takes on Togo at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Phokeng, NW. The Elephants make an effort to defeat well-known Sparrow Hawks.
Group D of the African Cup of Nations starts with the game between Côte d’Ivoire and Togo. Côte d’Ivoire are obviously the favourites to win this game win and the whole group. They are 14th on FIFAs world ranking. Their superstar forward Didier Drogba is the main power.
Côte d’Ivoire haven’t lost since the last year final. They lost that game on penalties to Zambia. Then they have won four games and drew three. Also they have six EPL and five Ligue 1 players in their squad. Côte d’Ivoire with all their European stars should have an easy game. Drogba plays for the last time on the CAN, so the elephants are very motivated. Cote d’Ivoire have talent and experience in the current squad and they could be called as the favourite for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations title.
Head coach Sabri Lamouchi has already earned some trust from officials and local fans since his work here from May.
Togo have strong rivals in this cup. They are coming into this game with four wins in their last five matches. Togo have their own star-striker Emmanuel Adebayor. Togo have Algeria and Tunisia as first rivals to beat in Group D. Togo have been absent from the continental picture for more than two years. Head coach Didier Six was chosen in November 2011. He has been able to solve some questions with the FA, with captain Emmanuel Adebayor and goalkeeper Kossi Agassa.
The opening game against one of the continent’s best team will be a great challenge for the ambitious coach.
