CÔTE D'IVOIRE 
TEAM PROFILE
Salomon Kalou's winner against Senegal in the play-offs sent the African side into their third consecutive World Cup.

Ivory Coast harbour some very talented players including the country's all-time top goal scorer Didier Drogba and Manchester City's powerhouse Yaya Toure.

The Ivorians' golden generation now has a distinctly greyish tinge, and this tournament is set to be the last of Drogba's international career. Their talented squad has flattered to deceive, with their failure to win at least one Africa Cup of Nations particularly mystifying.
