[World Cup] Key Player Review: Ivory Coast – Gervinho

He became a figure of fun in England, but Gervinho enjoyed a superb debut campaign at Roma, demonstrating irresistible dribbling skills and a consistent end product, the type of thing the Ivory Coast have lacked at previous tournaments.

They have always possessed the aerial ability of Didier Drogba and the midfield power of Yaya Toure, plus some experienced and dependable defenders.

But true flair has been lacking, and while Gervinho never guarantees a good performance, he’s the man capable of lifting the side to the next level.

If Gervinho is at his best, they’ll qualify for the second round with ease.
