Coach Michel Dussuyer has said he hopes Cote d’Ivoire do not have to play against the referee when they take on home team Rwanda in the opening match of the 2016 CHAN on Saturday.
“Our opening game on Saturday will be against the home team Rwanda and so we have to fight against Rwanda as well as the home crowd. I only hope we don’t have to fight against the referee as well,” said the former Benin and Guinea coach.
The Ivorians, who eliminated Ghana to reach Rwanda 2016, trained in South Africa ahead of the CHAN, drawing 1-1 with Guinea before they lost 1-0 to Nigeria on Monday.
They are also drawn alongside Gabon and Morocco in Group A of the competition.
