Results of the CAN of January 13, 2024
- Ivory Coast 2-0 Guinea-Bissau (Group A). But: Seko Fofana (4th), Krasso (58th).
Summary of the day
After a magnificent opening ceremony with the presence of French artists Dadju and Tayc who ignited the public, Ivory Coast faced Guinea-Bissau at the Ebimpé Olympic Stadium. Former Lens player Seko Fofana, who now plays for Al-Nassr, opened the scoring in the 4th minute with a superb curling shot, his specialty.
Despite some absences in defense and a lack of efficiency in attack, the Elephants finally doubled the lead in the 58th minute thanks to former AS Saint-Etienne striker Jean-Philippe Krasso, who scored with a beautiful acrobatic recovery. Fofana, after seeing another of his shots hit the bar thanks to Ouparine Djoco, was logically named man of the match. See you on Sunday at 3 a.m. for the other Group A match between Nigeria and Equatorial Guinea. On Thursday, the Ivorians will face the Super Eagles in the clash of the 2nd day.
