- Story Text: After beating Gabon 3-0 in Libreville on Saturday (September 2), Ivory Coast prepare to play their second World Cup qualifier against the Gabonese team on Tuesday (September 5) in Bouake, Ivory Coast.
The teams trained at Bouake stadium on Tuesday with Ivory Coast coach Marc Wilmots saying his team played well in the first match and now needed another victory to get closer to World Cup qualification.
Wilmots pointed out that tiny Luxembourg had held France to a 0-0 draw in their latest round of World Cup qualification and that was an example to his players to concentrate and win three points in their coming match.
Ivory Coast are top of their Africa Group C with two wins, one draw and no losses - giving them seven points. Morocco are second with five points and Gabon third with two. Mali are bottom of the group with one point.
