Ivory Coast Announce Final World Cup Squad

Ivory Costa head coach, Sabri Lamouchi, has announced his final 23-man World Cup squad.

This is the Elephants third World Cup appearance, but the talented generation around Didier Drogba and Yaya Toure have never made it past the group stages yet.

In Brazil, Ivory Coast will face Colombia, Greece and Japan in Group C, and are widely tipped to progress out of the group.

Goalkeepers: Boubacar Barry (Lokeren), Sylvain Gbohouo (Sewe Sport), Sayouba Mande (Stabaek)

Defenders: Serge Aurier (Toulouse), Jean-Daniel Akpa-Akpro (Toulouse), Didier Zokora (Trabzonspor), Kole Toure (Liverpool), Sol Bamba (Trabzonspor), Arthur Boka (Stuttgart), Constant Djakpa (Eintracht Frankfurt), Ousmane Diarrassouba Viera (Caykur Rizespor)

Midfielders: Cheick Tiote (Newcastle United), Geoffroy Serey Die (Basel), Ismael Diomande (St. Etienne), Didier Ya Konan (Hannover), Yaya Toure (Manchester City), Max Gradel (St. Etienne)

Forwards: Didier Drogba (Galatasaray), Wilfried Bony (Swansea City), Gervinho (Roma), Salomon Kalou (Lille), Giovanni Sio (Basel), Mathias Bolly (Dusseldorf)
