Ivory Coast coach Wilmots wary of Gabon

Ivory Coast head coach Marc Wilmots says he respects Gabon even without their captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Borussia Dortmund forward was left out of the Gabon squad that will face Ivory Coast in the 2018 FIFA World Cup Group C qualifiers.

The Panthers of Gabon will host Ivory Coast’s Elephants at the Stade de Franceville in Franceville on Saturday.

 »Our goal is to make a good match with a good result, » Wilmots said on NPA News.

« I watched the last game of Gabon against Mali, without Aubameyang.

The return leg match will be played at the Stade Bouake in Bouake, Ivory Coast next week Tuesday.

« It’s a good team that kept the Malians high. With or without Aubameyang, » the Belgian tactician added.

« We respect Gabon. And then, I also have absentees. »

Ivory Coast will be without injured duo Wilfried Zaha and Jonathan Kodja.
