Yesterday, Séwé Sport de San Pedro made an impressive and rather sensational performance, betaing Al-Hilal from Sudan 4-1 in the first round of the 2013 CAF Champions League. From my point of view, this result clearly shows that Ivorian club football has improved greatly during the last couple of years.

In this post, I will present the 14 playes that took part in the victory.

Name: AGBOKE, PACOME
Nationality: IVORY COAST
DOB: Unknown
Position: Defender
Season Club L Games Goals
2012 Séwé Sport de San Pedro(Ivory Coast) 1    0
2012-2013 Séwé Sport de San Pedro(Ivory Coast) 1

Pacome Agboke is a young, rather unknown defender who I think played at right-back against Al-Hilal. On 02.03.2013, Agboke scored one goal against Horoya AC from Guinea in the preliminary round of the 2013 CAF Champions League.

Name: ASSALÉ, ROGER
Nationality: IVORY COAST
DOB: 13.11.1993
Position: Stiker / Left-winger
Season Club L Games Goals
2011 SO Armée(Ivory Coast) 1
2012 Séwé Sport de San Pedro(Ivory Coast) 1    3
2012-2013 Séwé Sport de San Pedro(Ivory Coast) 1

Roger Assalé scored the first goal against Al-Hilal. Assalé has also scored six or seven goals during the Ivorian Ligue 1 2012-2013. From my point of view, Assalé is the most interesting player at Séwé Sport. The 19-year old attacker, who features for the Ivory Coast U-20 national football team, was included in the “Equipe type” (“Team of the Season”) after the Ivorian Ligue 1 2012.

Name: BINATÉ, SOULEYMANE
Nationality: IVORY COAST
DOB: 20.12.1991
Position: Midfielder / Winger
Season Club L Games Goals
2009 Issia Wazi FC(Ivory Coast) 1
2010 Issia Wazi FC(Ivory Coast) 1
2011 Séwé Sport de San Pedro(Ivory Coast) 1
2012 Séwé Sport de San Pedro(Ivory Coast) 1    0
2012-2013 Séwé Sport de San Pedro(Ivory Coast) 1

To be honest, I thought the 21-year old midfielder Souleymane Binaté was primarily a fringe player at the club. For the last couple of months, Binaté has forced his way into the first eleven and he is apparently in great form.

Name: GBOHOUO, SYLVAIN
Nationality: IVORY COAST
DOB: 29.10.1988
Position: Goalkeeper

2011 Séwé Sport de San Pedro(Ivory Coast) 1
2012 Séwé Sport de San Pedro(Ivory Coast) 1
2012-2013 Séwé Sport de San Pedro(Ivory Coast) 1

A couple of days ago, goalkeeper Sylvain Gbohouo was included in the squad of “Les Elephants”, the Ivory Coast national football team. Gbouhouo, who the “Meilleur gardien-award” after last season, is arguably the best goalkeeper in the Ivorian Ligue 1.

2012 Séwé Sport de San Pedro(Ivory Coast) 1    0
2012-2013 Séwé Sport de San Pedro(Ivory Coast) 1

The powerful Garba Idrissa Halidou scored frequently for Stade d’Abidjan but has struggled in front of goal since joining bigger clubs ASEC Mimosas and Séwé Sport. On 02.03.2013, the veteran from Niger scored one goal against Horoya AC in the preliminary round of the 2013 CAF Champions League.

Rostand Kako, the Cameroonian striker, is currently on fire. Kako scored against Horoya AC on 02.03.2013 and against ASEC Mimosas on 10.03.2013.

Cédric Kouadio N’Goran is a left-back who is about to blossom into a quality player. In 2010, while playing at second-level for EFYM, Kouadio N’Goran featured for the Ivory Coast U-20 national football team, suggesting that he is currently in his early twenties.

Name: OUATTARA, OUSMANE ADAMA
Nationality: IVORY COAST
DOB: 22.12.1993
Position: Central defender / Defensive midfielder
Season Club L Games Goals
2010 Séwé Sport de San Pedro(Ivory Coast) 1
2011 Séwé Sport de San Pedro(Ivory Coast) 1

Ousmane Adama Ouattara, who features for the Ivory Coast U-20 national football team, is one of the most promising centre-backs in the country.

Name: ZOUGOULA, KOELLY KEVIN 165 cm
Nationality: IVORY COAST
DOB: Unknown
Position: Striker
Season Club L Games Goals
Sabé Sport de Bouna(Ivory Coast)
AS AGIR Guibéroua(Ivory Coast)
2010 ASC Ouragahio(Ivory Coast) 1    9
2011 Séwé Sport de San Pedro(Ivory Coast) 1    11
2012 Séwé Sport de San Pedro(Ivory Coast) 1    10
2012-2013 Séwé Sport de San Pedro(Ivory Coast) 1

Koelly Kevin Zougoula scored one goal against Al-Hilal. Zougoula is a petit striker with a truly impressive work ethic, tremendous pace and excellent finishing skills. At the time of writing, Zougoula has scored nine or 10 goals during the Ligue 1 2012-2013. Zougoula is the most consistent goalscorer in the Ivorian league and I think he deserves a chance in Europe. Unfortunately, there is some confusion regarding the age of Zougoula as the Fédération Ivoirienne de Football has written both 20.03.1984 and 20.04.1988 as correct birthdate. A few days ago, Zougoula was included in the squad of “Les Elephants”, the Ivory Coast national football team.
