  THE TAPESCRIPT

We are so excited about reaching the World Cup Finals again. We live for our football in Cote d-Ivoire. We are not a rich country but we have a lot of world class players. The best of these is Didier Drogba. He is one of the best strikers in the world. He scored so many goals for Chelsea that helped them win England’s Premier League. He will strike fear in the hearts of all defenders. We also have other huge names; Chelsea’s Salomon Kalou, Barcelona’s Yaya Toure, Arsenal’s Emmanuel Eboue and Man City’s Kolo Toure. What a team! We have bad memories of the Germany World Cup in 2006. We lost to Argentina and the Netherlands and didn’t make it to the next round. This time will be different. We are stronger and more experienced.
