Cote d’Ivoire Beat Comoros


Cote d’Ivoire on Tuesday evening cleared the path for a projected Chipolopolo AFCON qualification.

The Elephants beat Comoros 2-0 away in Moroni to complete back to back wins over their opponents whom they defeated 3-1 in Bouake last Friday.

Ibrahim Sangare and Franck Kessie scored in the 36th and 59th minutes respectively to send Cote d’Ivoire back to the top of Group H on 10 points with two games to go.

Coromos stay put in third spot on 3 points meaning second placed Zambia who have 9 points need a draw at home in June against Cote d’Ivoire to qualify with a game in hand.


  1. We don’t need a draw in June. Play to beat Ivory Coast, not to draw. We might meet them at some stage during the AFCON 2024 tournament, so if we beat them in June there will be that psychological reminder.
