Cote d’Ivoire will play at home with Egypt in the 1/8 finals of the African Cup of Nations. The match will take place on January 26.
The Ivorians were considered one of the tournament favorites. If we take the composition of the team, then by name he is one of the strongest in Africa.
In their quartet , Côte d’Ivoire got 7 points, taking first place. Moreover, the team’s top scorer is Nicolas Pepe, who scored 2 goals.
Much more is expected from Sebastien Allaire . The Ajax forward has scored only once so far, but he is probably determined to improve his own statistics.
Recently, Côte d’Ivoire has not played so well against the Egyptians. Of the five face-to-face fights, the Ivorians got only one victory with two defeats.
This team looks very mediocre in the tournament. The Pharaohs only minimally beat Sudan and Guinea-Bissau.
But from Mohammed Salah and the company clearly expected more. It is time for Egypt to work on implementation, otherwise it will be problematic to claim the African crown.
By the way, apart from Salah, there is hope for Mohamed El-Nenni. The Gunner will probably still have a say in the tournament.
By the way, in the history of confrontations with the Ivorians , Egypt has won more often. But now the “pharaohs” do not look so powerful.
