Defending champions Ivory Coast stutter vs. Togo, Emmanuel Adebayor

Wilfried Zaha is now cap-tied after starting for Ivory Coast.
Wilfried Zaha showed flashes of quality but it wouldn't be enough for the Ivory Coast to defeat Togo.

OYEM, Gabon -- Three points from a surprising 0-0 draw for the Ivory Coast as they begin their African Nations Cup defence...

1. Ivory Coast begin title defence with a stutter

All in all, Ivory Coast stuttered on a night that did little to suggest they will have a straightforward run to a second successive Africa Cup of Nations title. Unfancied Togo deserved their goalless draw and increased their own chances of progressing from Group B; this result was hardly a disaster for the Elephants, but...

Ivory Coast start African Nations Cup defence expecting win over Togo

ESPN FC's Colin Udoh previews the African Cup of Nations and explains why he supports a 48-team World Cup.

Two years ago, when goalkeeper Boubacar Barry scored the penalty that won Ivory Coast a first African Nations Cup since 1992, there was barely a dry eye among those who understood exactly what it meant. This was the crowning moment for the remains of a vaunted "golden generation" whose powers were on the verge of expiry and a barely conceivable triumph for Barry, the veteran who had often been viewed as a weak link in the Elephants' attempts to be a world power.

Yaya Toure will be missed by Ivory Coast but his retirement no surprise

Yaya Toure will be remembered as one of African football's all-time greats having ended his international career.

Yaya Toure's decision to call time on his international career comes as no surprise, although there was the hope that his growing isolation at club level might have seen him decide to chase yet another African Nations Cup title with the Ivory Coast before hanging up his boots.

On Tuesday, he announced an end to his 14-year career with the reigning African champions.

"It was a difficult decision to make but I must pass the baton to the youth. After 14 years with the Elephants I must now terminate...

Yaya Toure signs for French side Caen - but it's not Man City's midfielder

Yaya Toure
Yaya Toure, the famous one, has yet to decide his future.

It looked for all the world like SC Caen had moved quickly to pull off one of the biggest transfer coups in recent memory when they announced that Yaya Toure had agreed a deal to join the mid-table Ligue 1 outfit.

Indeed, more than a few quizzical eyebrows were raised when the French team proudly announced their new acquisition on Thursday evening.

However, it quickly became apparent that Caen's pulling power wasn't quite as impressive as first thought when they posted a photo of their new recruit...

New Ivory Coast boss Michel Dussuyer facing high expectations

After previously coaching Benin and Guinea, Michel Dussuyer faces a new kind of pressure in leading the Ivory Coast.
After previously coaching Benin and Guinea, Michel Dussuyer faces a new kind of pressure in leading the Ivory Coast.

There are two, equally tough, kinds of jobs in football coaching: those with expectation and those without. Michel Dussuyer used to be an example of the former.

He was previously when he was in charge of Benin. The Squirrels, as they are known, are a smaller footballing nation with few accomplishments to their name. Then, Dussuyer began to move towards the latter with Guinea, a rising nation, who have been African Nations' Cup (ANC) quarterfinalists three times and are desperate to break through...
