AFCON : Wilfried Zaha Makes Ivory Coast 23-Man Squad 

share on:

Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha has been included in the 23-man Ivory Coast squad for the Africa Cup of Nations.

The 24-year-old switched international allegiance in November of last year despite having made two appearances for England.

Zaha was born in Ivory Coast but grew up in England and, having only featured for the Three Lions in friendlies against Sweden and Scotland, is eligible to commit his international future elsewhere.

Zaha is one of six English-based players to make Michel Dussuyer’s squad, alongside Eric Bailly, Lamine Kone, Wilfried Bony, Max Gradel and Jonathan Kodjia.

Ivory Coast will face Togo in their first match on January 16 before subsequent group games against DR Congo and Morocco.
