Nations Cup appearances: 20 
Best result: Winners (1992) 
Coach: Herve Renard (France) 
Key players: Yaya Toure, Wilfried Bony, Gervinho

Lost in the 2006 and 2012 finals. 

Defeat three years ago came against Zambia, who were then coached by Renard. 

The Elephants are without legendary striker Didier Drogba, who has retired from internationals, but they still scored the most goals in qualifying - 13 - and boast Bony, who has just become one of Africa's most expensive players after joining Manchester City for £28m.
