    Strength in depth

    If ever there was confirmation of the talent available to Ivory Coast, their bench is full of big names with Zaha, Pepe and Boly not selected. The pair of London wingers could really change a game if needed.

    Ivory trade

    Coming into this game as heavy favourites, Ivory Coast have a long list of household names in their squad. Here are some of the players who will have big parts to play if they are to repeat their 2015 success:

    Wilfred Zaha (Crystal Palace), Willy Boly (Wolves), Eric Bailly (Manchester United), Ibrahim Sangare (PSV Eindhoven), Franck Kessie (AC Milan), Serge Aurier (Tottenham), Nicholas Pepe (Arsenal) and in-form Sebastian Haller (Ajax)

    Third time lucky

    This will be Equatorial Guinea's third appearance at AFCON but their first when not hosting the tournament. With all the expectation being on their opponents, this a chance for them to play with freedom and potentially cause an upset in the process.

    Tunisia pay the penalty

    Elsewhere in the tournament today, it was a tale of two penalties with Mali taking their chance and Tunisia spurning their own, resulting in defeat for 'The Eagles of Carthage'. However, all people are talking about is the controversial end to the game with the referee ending the game early not once but twice!

    Point to prove

    Since winning the tournament in 2015, AFCON tournaments have been disappointing for 'Les Elephants' fans, with an early group exit followed by a quarter final defeat in 2019. Can this 'golden generation' live up to their billing and challenge for the AFCON crown this time around?

    Welcome back AFCON fans

    What a day of drama this has been already. If Equatorial Guinea and Ivory Coast can leave us talking about the game as Tunisia and Mali did, we are in for an entertaining evening. With all the teams looking to get off to a winning start, as one of the tournament favourites, Ivory Coast will be feeling that pressure even more.
