Côte d'Ivoire's 'Les Éléphants' are seen by most as Africa's strongest contender in the World Cup. The highest ranked African team in FIFA’s World Rankings (#23), 'Les Éléphants' boast an enviable roster featuring 3-time African Footballer of the Year and current Premier League champion Yaya Touré, his brother and defensive veteran Kolo Touré, past Chelsea staple Salomon Kalou, Roma forward Gervinho, and, of course, legendary captain & national icon Didier Drogba.
