Today at the Africa Cup of Nations, Ivory Coast will play Nigeria in a highly anticipated match Group A second game at the Alassane Ouattara Olympic Stadium.
The hosts made a great start to the tournament by defeating Guinea-Bissau 2-0 in the opening match, but Nigeria will have a lot of work ahead of them following their disappointing 1-1 draw against Equatorial Guinea.
A raucous crowd in the Stadium will support Cote d’Ivoire, who will be up against Jose Peseiro and his team.
The Super Eagles have to win or risk the humiliating prospect of losing early.
On the other hand, the hosts are very confident and will be looking to guarantee their spot in the knockout stage as soon as possible.
Here is how both teams line up.
Ivory Coast Starting XI:
Fofana, Ndicka, Diomande, Konan, Fofana, Aurier, Sangare, Kessie, Kouame, Boga, Krasso
Nigeria Starting XI:
Nwabili, Aina, Ekong, Bassey, Zaidu, Onyeka, Iwobi, Lookman, Chukwueze, Osimhen
