Abidjan - Ivory Coast coach Herve Renard has shown a willingness to turn to his ‘old guard’ ahead of their penultimate 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Sierra Leone on Friday, SuperSport reports.
The Leone Stars are unable to play in their home country due to the Ebola epidemic, hence the match sees them playing ‘hosts’ in the capital of their opponents. Kick-off at the Stade Felix Houphouet-Boigny in Abidjan is set for 5pm CAT.

Having claimed just a point from their first four qualifiers in Group D, Sierra Leone are virtually out of the running for the 2015 Nations Cup.
The same cannot be said for Ivory Coast, though the Elephants find themselves in third place in the group, four points adrift of leaders Cameroon and trailing second-placed DR Congo on goal difference.
