NOW TRY Quiz! Can you name the Portugal line-up from the 2006 World Cup match against England?

The Ivory Coast Golden Generation is one of the most beloved African sides of all time.

In the mid-2000s, they sprung up out of nowhere, with Premier League stars across the pitch, not to mention brain and brawn across the side. They made three World Cups in a row from 2006 and 2014 and though they never made it out of a group, their bright orange shirts and superstars are a core memory for everyone who grew up during that time.

2010 was their best showing by a small margin: they drew one more game in South Africa than they had done at their other two tournaments. In Port Elizabeth in their opening game of that tournament, Les Elephantes faced Portugal and held them to a 0-0. 

So how much do you remember of that classic Ivory Coast side? You should at least get their captain and star striker…
