Ivory Coast have reached the Africa Cup tournament final. The Elephants beat favourites Nigeria 1-0, thanks to a goal scored by Chelsea striker Didier Drogba. PSV forward Arouna Koné started on the bench this time. The French coach Henri Michel played Drogba and Bonaventure Kalou as strike partners up front. The latter was taken off fifteen minutes from final time and Koné came on to replace him. The only goal was netted just after the break, when Drogba finished a move he had set up himself. In the final Ivory Coast will face either Egypt or Senegal, who meet later today for their semi-final clash. The final is scheduled for next Friday. The game in Cairo will be kicked off at 17:00.
