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.

Squad:

Goalkeepers: Barry Boubacar, Yeboah Daniel, Sangare Badra Ali

Defenders: Bamba Souleman, Boka Arthur, Eboue Emmanuel, Lolo Igor, Tiene Siaka, Toure Kolo Abib, Ismael Traore

Midfielders: Abdul Razak, N’Dri Koffi Romaric, Max Gradel, Tiote Cheik Ismael, Toure Yaya Gnegneri, Ya Konan Didier, Zokora Didier

Forwards: Drogba Didier, Salomon Kalou, Kone Arouna, Traore Lacina, Bony Wilfried, Yao Kouassi Gervais
