Ivory Coast: Looking for a surprise

On the other hand, the Ivorian national team, led by Frenchman Patrice Beaumelle, is not going through a good soccer moment, despite a remarkable evolution of its team. After a poor performance in the Africa Cup where they reached the round of 16, Ivory Coast will not be present at the Qatar 2022 World Cup. Today they will play their first match after their participation in the Africa Cup and will do so against none other than the world champion team, so the Ivorians will be looking for a surprise. In their last match, Ivory Coast drew 0-0 against Egypt, but lost on penalties in the round of 16 of their continental cup.
