World Cup participations: none
Greatest World Cup achievement: none
Ivory Coast has qualified in the strongest african group
against Cameroon and Egypt - that alone says something about
the strength of the west-africans.
The big star in the team of Henri Michel is Chelsea's Didier Drogba.
Next to him there are Bonaventure Kalou of Paris SG, Arouna Kone,
defender Kolo Toure of Arsenal and some other class players.
You see - Ivory Coast is better than its name and in nearly every
other group they would have serious chances.
In the group with Argentina and Holland it is very difficult, but
who knows? at least for a surprise against Serbia it could be enough,
possibly even for more ...
The odds on Ivory Coast as world cup winner were certainly very high
- 101.0 at Betandwin.
For a bet on group winner Ivory Coast you get 10.0.
