The pressure is on Ivory Coast, which is counting on the Alassane Ouattara stadium in Abidjan to start the competition. The two teams have never faced each other before. The Ivorians, favorites in Group A, know they cannot afford to make mistakes as they face Nigeria next Thursday (6:00 p.m.). The Super Eagles play against Equatorial Guinea this Sunday (3 p.m.). The African Cup of Nations arrived from January 13 to February 11 in different cities.
