AFCON AFCON 2023: Ivory Coast Vs Equatorial Guinea Confirmed Starting XI

Africa Cup of Nations hosts Ivory Coast look to avoid another embarrassing defeat when they take on in-form Equatorial Guinea at the Alassane Ouattara Stadium on Monday.

The Elephants suffered a damaging 1-0 loss in their second Group A fixture against Nigeria to leave the home side in a precarious position before battling high-flying Nzalang Nacional, who secured a rip-roaring triumph over Guinea-Bissau in round two.

Nzalang Nacional have qualification from the group all but assured after an exciting 4-2 triumph over Guinea-Bissau in their second game at AFCON 2023.

Gasset’s men occupy third in Group A, currently enough to advance as one of the best third-placed sides in the competition, with Groups D, E and F yet to complete their second round of fixtures at the time of writing.

Losing to the Equatoguineans would be a disaster, and while a draw could see the Elephants progress in any capacity, it is not expected to appease a disappointed home support, who left Ebimpe in low spirits after Nigeria’s win.

Here is how both teams line up

Fofana, Konan, Singo, Fofana, Kessie, Boly, Diakite, Sangare, Pepe, Kouame, Ndicka
