Cote d'Ivoire

Known by the nickname ‘The Elephants’, Ivory Coast will be appearing at their second WAFU Nations Cup.

They were hosts of the inaugural tournament and beat Gambia 5-0 in their opening match before the tournament was cancelled due to the outbreak of civil war, while they withdrew from the 2011 event in Nigeria and were replaced by Niger.

This year Ivory Coast will face Togo in the opening knockout round and look to advance into the group stage alongside the region’s heavyweights.

Listed 54th on FIFA’s official world rankings, the Elephants’ locally-based side was given a tough working over by Niger in the teams’ two-legged qualifying tie for the 2018 African Nations Championship, and they will be determined to prove themselves in the 2017 edition of the WAFU Nations Cup.
