Ivory Coast or Équipe de Côte d’Ivoire (French) is nicknamed as The Elephants (Les Éléphants). But in their last two FIFA World Cups they have failed to move beyond 1st round, as on both occasions they finished 3rd behind the top two teams of the group. Didier Drogba has enchanted the World in league matches but at World Cup, just his presence has not been enough. Drogba-led team is set to improve their performance hoping to be third time lucky in their third consecutive Football World Cup. Based on ranking, the first among African nations, entire Africa would put their hope on them.
