ivory coastIvory Coast fans hopeful of third AFCON title ahead of tournament final

Abidjan (AFP) – In front of a giant mural in Abidjan depicting Ivory Coast’s most successful footballers, fans express their optimism ahead of Sunday’s Africa Cup of Nations final, in which The Elephants hope to secure the trophy for a third time. “We’re proud and happy” says one fan, as another thinks “it will be tough, but we’re going to win.” Ivory Coast escaped an early scare in the tournament after a surprise 4-0 loss to Equatorial Guinea left the hosts in danger of a humiliating group-stage exit.
