Cote d’Ivoire goalkeeper Karim Cisse has issued a warning to Zambia ahead of their 2018 CAF African Nations Championship match on Thursday.

The Elephants keeper says Chipolopolo will see a different side from the one which lost to Namibia.

Cisse believes Zambia is a good team and admits they will be under pressure to bag a win in their second Group B encounter.

“It’s going to be pretty difficult, but [against Zambia] you’ll see a new face of the Ivory,” said the Asec Mismosas keeper.

“The Zambia match is just another game. They’re a good footballing nation, but we know how to play and we know our qualities.

“The fact we’ve lost our first game increases the pressure, but it’s a good pressure.”

The clash is set to be a thriller with the Southern Africans motivated by their win and are gunning for another three points to boost their knockout aspirations.
