Feindouno: Suspended

Guinea could be missing key players for the Africa Cup of Nations quarter-final with tournament favourites Ivory Coast.

Pascal Feindouno is absent and Bobo Balde is a doubt for Guinea, who are playing in their third consecutive quarter-final.

Influential forward Feindouno is serving the second match of a two-game ban following his sending-off against Morocco in the group phase.

Celtic defender Balde is doubtful with a thigh injury picked up in training on Friday, although he is hoping to be fit.


Balde told reporters: "My thigh is hurting. I had a test and we have to wait to see if I will be able to play, but I hope it will be all right."

Midfielder Kanfory Salla and defender Ibrahima Camara have minor knocks, but Guinea coach Robert Nouzaret expects the duo to be fit.

Ivory Coast rested several regulars in beating Mali 3-0 in their final group game en route to topping their section.

The Elephants will be close to full-strength, with Arsenal centre-half Kolo Toure the only worry due to a groin complaint.

Didier Drogba will lead the line for an Ivory Coast side which has scored eight goals, and conceded just one, in three games to date.
