Host of this 27th Afrobasket, Ivory Coast will be eagerly awaited by their public tonight. Unbeaten since the start of the competition, the Elephants will stay focused to avoid a nasty surprise against admittedly inexperienced Stallions looking for a first win. So beware the trap game.
As a curtain raiser to the eighth-finals, some of the 1500 happy recipients of free tickets will attend the Maghreb derby between Morocco and Algeria.
Cameroon does not have time to ruminate for a long time its defeat against Nigeria. The Lions will face Mozambique, third in Group C. These first knockout round will be completed with the match Angola-Mali.
