Drogba leads Elephants charge

Ivory Coast coach Sabri Lamouchi on Thursday published his squad for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, retaining almost the entire group that reached the final of the previous edition in Gabon / Equatorial Guinea early this year.

Anzhi Makhachkala’s frontman Lacina Traore and Manchester City’s loan-out Abdul Razak are the new faces in the fold while Kone Aruna of Wigan Athletic returns after falling out of favour with the Elephants.

The team will carry out preparations for the tournament in Abu Dhabi and play a friendly match against Egypt on January 14.

Ivory Coast have been drawn against Togo, Tunisia and Algeria in Group D and will open their campaign against the Sparrow Hawks in Rustenburg on January 22.
