Starting XI: Côte d'Ivoire v Togo

2013 Africa Cup of Nations (Group D)

Teams: Côte d'Ivoire - Togo

Venue: Royal Bafokeng Stadium

 

Title favourites Côte d'Ivoire will open their 2013 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) campaign against Togo in Rustenburg on Tuesday.

Sabri Lamouchi's men, losing finalists to Zambia on penalties last year, are the number one ranked side on the continent.

The West African giants boast a star-studded ensemble, with much expected from the likes of African Footballer of the Year Yaya Toure, record scorer Didier Drogba and Arsenal attacker Gervinho.

The Ivorians have reached the competition's final hurdle three times, winning the showpiece in 1992.

Togo, meanwhile, will be aiming to pull off an unlikely upset.

The Sparrow Hawks, who have never progressed past the first round of the event, will rely heavily on Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor for inspiration in the final third.

This is how they line up:

Côte d'Ivoire: Boubacar Barry, Emmanuel Eboue, Didier Zokora, Kolo Toure, Sol Bamba, Siaka Tiene, Max Gradel, Didier Ya Konan, Yaya Toure, Gervinho, Didier Drogba.

Togo: Agassi Kossi, Dare Nibombe, Serge Akakpo, Abdul Mamah, Komlan Amewou, Vincent Bossou, Floyd Ayite, Alaixys Ramao, Serge Gakpe, Dakonam Djeni, Emmanuel Adebayor.
