Three things learned from Ivory Coast's Group D-clinching 1-0 triumph over Cameroon at the African Nations Cup.

Gradel comes to life

Ivory Coast's star-studded side may have to depend on the drawing of lots to reach the quarterfinals at the African Nations Cup depending on the results of Wednesday's Group D matches.

Yaya Toure, his new Manchester City teammate Wilfried Bony and the rest of his Ivorian teammates will face Cameroon at Malabo Stadium, while Guinea takes on Mali in Mongomo. All four teams in Group D have two points after 1-1 draws in each match.

"We fight like elephants to try to win this game," said veteran Ivory...
