The Arsenal Manager Prof. Arsene Wenger has joined pundits to tip Ivory Coast for the title ahead of the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
Whether this is just wishful saying or was said following a proper scrutiny of both teams technical abilities is not known. You may be tempted to attribute it to be a pep talk for his Ivorian players Emmanuel Eboue and Kolo Toure who will be playing against Nigeria in the group stage of the competition.
According to Complete sports Newspaper, Arsene wenger thinks Ivory coast has a team that is more technically sound and so expects his lads to return back to Emirate victorious.
Time will tell after all. The super Eagles on their part are known to spring surprises when no one expects it. But we’ll all see. Do you think Ivory Coast will win?
