PLAYER PRESENTATION – IVORY COAST

Guy Bedi

Name: BAMBA, ISSIAKA 180 cm 73 kg
Nationality: IVORY COAST
DOB: 31.03.1990
Position: Left-winger / Right-winger / Striker
Season Club L Games Goals
2008 ES Bingerville(Ivory Coast) 1
2008-2009 Olympic Charleroi(Belgium) 2    5    0
2010 Stade d’Abidjan(Ivory Coast) 1    0
2011 Africa Sports(Ivory Coast) 1    2
2012 Africa Sports(Ivory Coast) 1    0
2012-2013 Stella Club d’Adjamé(Ivory Coast) 1

I think Stella Club has made a smart move signing Issiaka Bamba from Africa Sports. Bamba, primarily a left-winger, is a pacy player with a direct style of play. Bamba scored his first goal for Stella Club on 14.12.2012. Some of his qualities can be watched here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_x5HlngiZO4.

Name: BAMBA, NAMBELESSENY YACOUBA 182 cm 68 kg
Nationality: IVORY COAST
DOB: 30.11.1991
Position: Left-winger / Attacking midfielder
Season Club L Games Goals
Athlétic d’Adjamé(Ivory Coast)
2011 ASEC Mimosas(Ivory Coast) 1    8    0
2012 ASEC Mimosas(Ivory Coast) 1    4    0
2012-2013 ASEC Mimosas(Ivory Coast) 1

Last season, the highly regarded Nambelesseny Yacouba Bamba started only one match during the Ligue 1 2012. After seven matches of the Ligue 1 2012-2013, Bamba has started three and looks sharper then ever. ASEC Mimosas is famous for nurturing talent and Bamba could be set for a sound career.

Name: BÉDI, GUY
Nationality: IVORY COAST
DOB: 20.12.1995
Position: Striker
Season Club L Games Goals
2012-2013 AFAD Djékanou(Ivory Coast) 1

Guy Bédi turned 17 today and the promising striker is definitely a player to watch. Bédi, comfortable in various attacking roles, was joint top scorer of the 2011 African U-17 Championship in Rwanda, having scored four goals. Further, Bedi played four matches for the Ivory Coast U-17 national football team during the 2011 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Mexico. At the time of writing, Bédi has played a couple of matches for AFAD Djékanou. He has yet to score his first goal. His full name is “Guy Stéphane Bédi”. The picture is of Bédi and was found on FIFA.com.

Name: CISSÉ, ABDOUL KARIM
Nationality: IVORY COAST
DOB: 20.10.1985
Position: Goalkeeper
Season Club L Games Goals
ASEC Mimosas(Ivory Coast)
2007 Issia Wazi FC(Ivory Coast) 1
2008 Issia Wazi FC(Ivory Coast) 1
2009 Issia Wazi FC(Ivory Coast) 1
2010 Issia Wazi FC(Ivory Coast) 1
2010 Africa Sports(Ivory Coast) 1
2011 Africa Sports(Ivory Coast) 1
2012 Africa Sports(Ivory Coast) 1
2012-2013 Africa Sports(Ivory Coast) 1

I’m a big fan of Abdoul Karim Cissé, first choice goalkeeper at Africa Sports. From my point of view, Cissé is the goalkeeper with the highest potential in Ligue 1. If Cissé, a tall, athletic goalkeeper with excellent shot stopping ability, is able to bring a higher level of consistency to his game, he could head for a bigger league soon.

Name: COULIBALY, HAMED
Nationality: IVORY COAST
DOB: 14.02.1984
Position: Goalkeeper
Season Club L Games Goals
2008 USC Bassam(Ivory Coast) 1
2009 USC Bassam(Ivory Coast) 1
2010 USC Bassam(Ivory Coast) 1
2011 USC Bassam(Ivory Coast) 1
2012 USC Bassam(Ivory Coast) 1
2012-2013 USC Bassam(Ivory Coast) 1

Most fans of Ivorian football would define Hamed Coulibaly of USC Bassam as one of the finest goalkeepers in Ligue 1. Coulibaly, sometimes referred to as “Ahmed Coulibaly”, was nominated for the “Meilleur Gardien”-award after the 2012-season and the experienced shot stopper has previously played for the Ivory Coast B national football team.

Name: COULIBALY, SALIF IBRAHIM

Position: Left-back / Left-winger
Season Club L Games Goals

2011 AFAD Djékanou(Ivory Coast) 1    0
2012 SO Armée(Ivory Coast) 1    0
2012-2013 AFAD Djékanou(Ivory Coast) 1

Youngster Salif Ibrahim Coulibaly was part of the Ivory Coast U-17 national football team for the 2011 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Mexico. Earlier this year, Coulibaly featured for the Ivory Coast U-20 national football team. It is fair to say that Coulibaly is one of the most promising left-sided players in the country.

2012 AFAD Djékanou(Ivory Coast) 1    1
2012-2013 AFAD Djékanou(Ivory Coast) 1

Petit midfielder Sanga Topio Coulibaly is the midfield maestro at AFAD Djékanou. Coulibaly is a great ball-winner and he dictates the flow of the game with smart passes, dribbles and a great overview. Check out some highlights here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zPfvM2bAp4.

2012 Stella Club d’Adjamé(Ivory Coast) 1    1

Tiécoura Coulibaly is a rock-solid left-back who loves to join the attack. Coulibaly has experience from the Ivory Coast B national football team and is one of the first names on the team-sheet at Stella Club.
