You could probably add in the most famous players section,names such as LAurent Pokou: the African Cup highest scorer of all time in Asmara ethiopia, Yousouf Falikou FOfana the Black Diamond of Monaco and Abdoulaye Traore who has been named one of the most outstanding forwards in the world several times in the 1990s .

IVORIAN supporter from MALTA
-We are sending this message from OUR LADY OF SORROWS church in ST Pauls Bay. We are a group of supporters of Ivory Coast because we think negros are good in football and also they are strong. We are going to watch all the games of IVORY COAST with great passion and enthusiasm. We think that Ivory coast are the best team of Germany 2006 Well we wish them good luck and as we Maltese say VIVA L-IVORY COAST COME ON ELEPHANTS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk • contribs) 10:50, 12 June 2006
Football for peace?
- As it was well publisized that fighting in the Ivory Coast civil war was suspended so that the warring factions could watch the Elephants' games in the 2006 World Cup, I think something about that should be included in the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nygoodliving (talk • contribs) 15:57, 18 June 2006
Fair use rationale for Image:Cote dIvoire FA.gif
Image:Cote dIvoire FA.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 21:23, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

Given that this is English wikipedia, why is this not Ivory Coast? Thin end and wedge anyone? danno 21:03, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
The official English name of Côte d'Ivoire actually is Côte d'Ivoire. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C%C3%B4te_d%27Ivoire#Name_of_the_countrySchoenheit von Vogelsang (talk) 09:19, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
I think there's a mistake in this article - Bakari Kone (Marseille striker) aka Baky was called up to the squad, not Arouna Kone (Seville). I was at the press conference so I should know! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 16:29, 17 May 2010 (UTC)
To note that there is a request for comment on whether Wikipedia should be giving primacy to the phrase of Côte d'Ivoire or Ivory Coast. Those who would like to express their opinion and participate in the discussion should do at that talk page. billinghurst sDrewth 08:30, 12 July 2010 (UTC)
most competitive group in WC 2010?
This statement is highly arguable. None of the teams in the group made it past the quarter-finals...
"Then again, in the 2010 World Cup of South Africa, Côte d'Ivoire was drawn in another group of death. The group consisted of the always favorite Brasil, the explosive Portugal, and the seemingly weak North Korea. Côte d'Ivoire placed 3rd in Group G. Nevertheless, Côte d'Ivoire, for the past two World Cup, has been drawn in the most competitive groups". —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 10:57, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
"accusations of FIFA racism"
I deleted the nonsense that FIFA were accussed of racism because they put CIV into difficult groups for the last two world cups. It was a draw done at random. And there was no link or reference to any article anywhere that suggested FIFA racism. — Preceding unsigned comment added by DrSWP241 (talk • contribs) 11:35, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
Name issue again
This is quite ridiculous... sate names can't be translated into English, otherwise many other states (as well) could appear as follows:
- Costa Rica- Rich coast.
- Cape Verde- Green Cape.
- Algeria (Arabic: al-Djazayer)- The Islands.
- Morocco (Arabic: al-Maghreb)- The West.
- United Arab Emirates- United Arab Principalities.
- Bahrain- The Two Seas.
- Puerto Rico- Rich Port.
- Ecuador- The Equator.
- Venezuela- Small Venezia.
