Scenes of joy that reflect everything that football represents, here is what we saw throughout Ivory Coast after the Elephants qualified for the quarter-finals of their CAN.
However, after the disappointing group stage of their team, the whole country is now behind the Ivorian selection. Thanks to Morocco's victory a few days earlier, the Ivorians did not fail to thank the Atlas Lions for having offered them this qualification, now it is theirs that they are celebrating.
By overthrowing Senegal, the reigning champion, the Ivorian players have given back the faith to an entire people who are waiting for only one thing: to see their country lift the cup at home.
The orphaned players of Jean-Louis Gasset, dismissed after his first failed competitive game, are now supported by millions of supporters to lead them to success.
