Morocco vs Ivory Coast – Live

Renard became the first coach to ever win the Africa Cup of Nations with two different countries in 2015, ending Ivory’s Coast’s 23-year wait for the title.

He left for a short spell at Lille later that year, before returning to international football in 2016 with Morocco.

A 2-0 win away to Ivory Coast in November 2017 secured Morocco’s place in Russia and, although this will be the sides’ first meeting since, Kamara insists vengeance is not on the mind of his players.

“We’re not here for revenge,” said head coach Kamara, who oversaw Ivory Coast’s Under-20s when Renard was in charge of the senior side.

Under Renard, the Atlas Lions qualified for the 2018 World Cup, their first appearance in the competition since 1998.

Herve Renard is searching for a hat-trick of titles at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations. He’ll join an exclusive club of coaches who have achieved that feat, should he guide Morocco to the trophy win.

He’ll have to get past one of the very teams he made champions when Morocco take on Ivory Coast on Friday.

Both countries launched their campaigns with solitary-goal victories in sweltering mid-afternoon Cairo heat, but the Ivorians will have been the happier side.

While they outmuscled South Africa and should have won by more than a Jonathan Kodjia strike, Morocco laboured to a win that came via a late Itamunua Keimuine own-goal.
