Last chance for the ‘Golden generation’
The vastly talented Ivorian team have an opportunity to finish as winners or go down in history as nearly men or “chokers”.Those are the two options that await the Elephants as they head to South Africa in search of that elusive AFCON trophy.Considered as the revelation of the decade after bursting to the international scene in 2006, qualifying for their first ever World Cup and finishing as runners up of the 2006 AFCON , the Ivorian team centred around Didier Drogba ,Didier Zokora,Tiene,Eboue and the Toure brothers, has a last chance to win the trophy for the first time since 1992.
