It's not going well for the Ivory Coast in their African Cup of Nations opener.
The boys with the reverse Ireland flag find themselves down to ten men after Gervinho was sent off for a bizarre slap/punch after one of Guinea players appeared to stand on his toe. Despite having familiar names like Kolo Toure, Yaya Toure, Wilfred Bony, Solomon Kalou and Cheik Tiote, Gervinho's red has seen them struggle to a 1-1 draw at the moment.
