Jan 6, 2017-

Flying Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha looks set to make his Ivory Coast debut after he was named in their final 23-man squad for the Africa Cup of Nations on Wednesday. The 24-year-old is among several Premier League stars included by coach Michel Dussuyer for the January 14-February 5 tournament in Gabon, where the Ivory Coast are defending champions and among the favourites to retain their crown. Dussuyer last week named a 24-man provisional squad and it is defender Ousmane Viera, who plays in Turkey, who misses out. (AFP)
