MALABO Ivory Coasts winning goal scorer Didier Drogba isnt worried by his sides disappointing display against Sudan, but says the most important thing is the three points.
The Elephants took on Sudan in the opening Group B encounter of the African Cup of Nations, where a lackluster display by the Ivoirians saw them carve out a narrow 1-0 win with a goal from the Chelsea forward.
In an opening match, the most important thing is to take the three points; we will concentrate on putting a nice display within the few next days, he told OrangeSport.
Meanwhile, the winning sides coach, Fancois Zahoui, confirmed that there are no easy matches in a prestigious intercontinental tournament.
People always expect to witness some fireworks with Ivory Coast, but its the Africa Cup of Nations, its very difficult, and our aim is to gain the final victory.
I watched Equatorial Guineas win as well as Senegals troubles; we did a specific type of training to in order to gradually improve as the competition goes further on, concluded the Ivory coast tactician.
The loss for Sudan doesnt mean the end of the road of as coach, Mohamed Abdalla, is determined that his young team will be working harder for the next match against Angola on Thursday.
Against a team like Cote dIvoire, with all its stars and with them being big favourites for the final trophy, we had to be very cautious.
I am in charge of a young and inexperienced side. I am not upset with the players. But it doesnt mean I am satisfied with the result. We are going to go back to work ahead of the next match.
