Sven Goran Eriksson’s Ivory Coast are all but out of the 2010 World Cup but will be looking to go out with pride when they face a North Korea side who were trounced 7-0 by Portugal.
Didier Drogba will start upfront for Ivory Coast, most likely in tandem with Gervinho, who will replace Aruna Dindane in the starting line up.
Midfielder Didier Zokora is among five Ivorian players to be one card away from suspension. The others include Keita, Tiene and Tiote.
North Korea are also out of contention, but will be looking for a better performance before they return home than the one they showed against Portugal.
Coach Kim Jong-hun is set to play a more defensive formation than the one that capitulated so badly last time out.
KICK-OFF: FRIDAY JUNE 25th 15:00 GMT
