Ivory Coast vs Guinea-Bissau LIVE! AFCON result, match stream and latest updates today

Ivory Coast vs Guinea-Bissau LIVE!

The 2023 Africa Cup of Nations has begun with the hosts in action at the impressive Alassane Ouattara Stadium in Abidjan. The two-times champions were very much expected to hit the ground running in front of their own fans against a side outside the top 100 of the world rankings.

A strong squad has been picked by Ivory Coast boss Jean-Louis Gasset, who could even afford to leave Wilfried Zaha out. Sebastien Haller missed out through injury with Jean-Philippe Krasso leading the Ivorian line. Guinea-Bissau, meanwhile, hoped Lyon forward Mama Balde can help cause an upset.

Les Elephants came out on top after an early strike by Seko Fofana, before a nervy showing was eased in the searing humidity by Krasso's second-half goal.
