Ivory Coast vs DR Congo: Possible Lineups, Team News & TV Channel for AFCON 2024

Ivory Coast vs Guinea-Bissau

Tournament hosts Ivory Coast will face DR Congo in the semi-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations 2023 on February 7.

The Elephants endured a torrid competition, with Emers Fa taking over as head coach following the controversial sacking of Jean-Louis Gasset after the group stages.

However, they battled through the knockout rounds, winning over defending champions Senegal in a penalty shoot-out before taking extra time over Mali in the quarter-finals.

Interim boss Fa shuffled his options between wins over Senegal and Mali and will be without defender Odilon Kossounou due to suspension for this game.

Premier League veteran Willy Boly will cover for Kossouna with Brighton & Hove Albion winger Simon Adingra coming in after scoring off the bench against Mali.

DR Congo beat Guinea 3-1 in the quarter-finals and could stick with an unchanged starting eleven with Brentford’s Yoane Wissa in attack.
