Boubacar "Copa" Barry (born 30 December 1979) is an Ivorian footballer, who plays for Lokeren and the Ivory Coast national team as a goalkeeper. 

He has played for Lokeren since July 2007.

 

CAREER

In Belgium, he plays with "Copa" on his shirt; however, for the national team, his regular name is used. 

He is two-footed. 

At the 2010 World Cup he took goal kicks with his right foot, while using his left foot to kick the ball forward after tossing it in the air.

He has 86 caps for the national team, and was called up to the 2006 World Cup. 

He appeared in the final group match against Serbia and Montenegro in 22 June 2006, which Ivory Coast won 3:2.

Barry started all three matches for the Ivory Coast in Group G in the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

Barry earned clean sheets against Portugal and North Korea. 

Barry scored a penalty for Lokeren in the 2011-12 season, in a 4:0 win against Westerlo. 

He won the Belgian Cup with Lokeren in the same season.

Barry was the first-choice goalkeeper for the Elephants' 2014 FIFA World Cup Campaign as they narrowly missed out on qualifying for the second round following an injury-time defeat to Greece.

Barry was called up to the Ivory Coast squad for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations held in Equatorial Guinea. 

He was benched for most of the tournament in favour of his younger team-mate Sylvain Gbohouo, but went on to play in the final following Gbohouo's injury in the semi-final.

It was his second appearance in the showpiece event having been in goal in the 2012 final against Zambia. 

The 2015 final finished goalless after normal and extra-time, and Barry emerged as the hero by saving two penalties and scoring the winning penalty, overcoming a cramp in the process.

He also overcame the disappointment of the 2012 final which had also gone to penalties.

He announced his international retirement in 3 March 2015.
