Guelassiognon Sylvain Gbohouo (born 29 October 1988) is an Ivorian professional footballer who plays for Mazembe as a goalkeeper and the Ivory Coast.[2]

International career[edit]

Gbohouo made his debut for the national team on 6 July 2013, in a 4–1 loss against Nigeria at the 2014 African Nations Championship qualification.[3]

He was part of the team that played in the 2014 FIFA World Cup, but did not make an appearance.[4]

He was Ivory Coast's starting goalkeeper at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations as they went all the way to the final, but a thigh injury sustained in the semi-final against DR Congo saw him miss out the final match in favour of veteran Boubacar Barry.[5][6] He was still named the tournament's best goalkeeper, and since Barry's retirement, Gbohouo has been the Elephants' undisputed number one.
