Ivory Coast have a team full of talents and names practically everyone knows, but somehow have failed to live up to the expectations placed on them. During the World Cup they won only one match of their group and lost the other two. Should the unexpected happen, Ivory Coast have Kalou, Bony, Gervinho, Doumbia and Traore to create and deliver scoring chances. Their backline will benefit from Kolo Toure and Serge Aurier’s expertise and it will end up being whether Guinea will be able to exploit the hosts shortcomings.
