2013 Afcon qualifiers: Gervinho “Elephants are not scared by Senegal”
The Elephants were drawn opposite one of the most avoided powerful nations, Senegal. Gervinho said the Teranga lions do not scare them at all. "Côte d’Ivoire should not fear any opponent. Senegal is a big team with big players whom we respect. Our ambition is to qualify for the 2013 Afcon no matter the opponent we face", reacted the player shortly after the draws. It should be noted that first leg matches of the qualifiers will be played from the 7th to the 9th of September while return leg encounters run from October 5 to the 7th.
