Gervinho stars as Ivory Coast cruise into next round in style with 3-0 win over Tunisia

Ivory Coast 3 – Tunisia 0 (African Cup of Nations, January 26, 2013) Ivory Coast had a decent chance early on but the header went just wide. Gervinho gave The Elephants the lead with a team golazo, performing a neat one-two with Lacina Traore before finishing into the top corner. Gervinho was again involved as the Elephants looked to have gone 2-0 ahead, but the goal was wrongly ruled out for offside. Didier Drogba chested down a nice pass. Yaya Toure made it 2-0 with a cracking strike from outside the box.
