Tunisia/Cote d'Ivoire: Things You Should Know - Cote d'Ivoire Vs. Tunisia

There are six English Premier League players in the Cote d'Ivoire 2013 Afcon squad and five French Ligue 1 players.

Despite the star-studded Ivorian team, they still came with one home based player, Badra Ali Sangare, who is the outfit's third choice goalkeeper.

Didier Drogba has reiterated that this edition will be his last with the Elephants, although he said he would be playing in the 2014 World Cup if they happen to qualify.

Tunisia only qualified for the tournament following a 2-2 aggregate win over minnows Sierra Leone.

The Tunisians have been unable to repeat their success since their 2004 Afcon crown, only reaching the quarter-final stages of the tournament since they lifted the trophy.
