At the Africa Cup of Nations on Wednesday, Herve Renard and his young Ivory Coast side learned that revenge is a dish best served cold. The Elephants were trounced by Cameroon, 4-1, in the qualifiers in September, but they had the last laugh as they eliminated the Indomitable Lions from the 2015 Afcon following a superb Max Gradel goal. Since that unhappy defeat in Yaounde, new coach Renard has overseen...

Avram Grant’s Ghana were one of the biggest disappointments of the first round of Africa Cup of Nations group-stage matches. The Black Stars started well against Senegal, exploiting the space ahead of the Teranga Lions’ defence and enjoying large spells of possession. However, despite opening the scoring through an Andre Ayew penalty, they were unable to capitalise on their early dominance. In... 

Cameroon vs. Ivory Coast and the AFCON Group-Stage Matches to Watch

Published: January 17, 2015

At the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations, the four groups carry particular intrigue and the first round should be packed with engrossing matches. This is not least because of the lopsided nature of the draw, which ensures a number of genuinely blockbuster contests in the opening week of action. By the same token, however, a number of less-heralded sides, receiving succour from avoiding the big dogs, may approach...

Finally, for the first time since their opening Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against the Republic of Congo, Nigeria had their destiny in their own hands. Having beaten the Republic of Congo 2-0 away in their penultimate match, Nigeria knew they just needed to get a better result at home against already-qualified South Africa than the Red Devils managed away against Sudan.

Despite his superb start to life in the Premier League, Diafra Sakho was overlooked by Senegal manager Alain Giresse for the team’s recent Cup of Nations double-header against Tunisia. Following his excellent form in England, however, the French manager must make the striker a key feature of the Senegal side before it is too late. Sakho has taken the Premier League by storm since arriving at...

Anyone who still believes in the fallacy of immortality in football ought to take a look at Yaya Toure. At the end of last season, the Ivorian midfielder was untouchable at Manchester City. He had just scored 20 goals in the Premier League, becoming only the second central midfielder (after Frank Lampard) to hit the 20-goal mark in the EPL era. His goals had also brought a tangible reward as City claimed...
