Ivory Coast get their 2013 African Cup of Nations campaign underway against Togo this afternoon, with the pre-tournament favourites’ squad full of Premier League stars set to go all the way in South Africa.
The likes of Arsenal’s Gervinho, Manchester City’s Kolo and Yaya Toure, Newcastle’s Cheick Tiote and Wigan’s Arouna Kone, alongside former Chelsea duo Didier Drogba and Salomon Kalou, will all be in action and aiming to avenge last year’s final defeat to Zambia.
To celebrate Ivory Coast kicking off their quest for the 2013 African Cup of Nations trophy, we are giving away an Ivory Coast home shirt.
One of the latest editions to the PUMA Africa range, the Ivory Coast Home Shirt Replica is the result of an inspiring and highly creative collaboration with a selection of artists from the Creative African Network (CAN) www.CreativeAfricanNetwork.com.
The shirt graphic is designed by CAN artist Ernest Dükü. He was inspired by the elephant as it is symbolic of both the Ivory Coast and its national football team. The continuous trunk of the elephant represents the love of football that is never ending for the Ivory Coast.
