Ivory Coast coach Sabri Lamouchi will likely field his strongest side against El Salvador.
Lamouchi had fielded fringe players in an earlier friendly match against Bosnia and Herzegovina, but they failed to shine and Ivory Coast lost 1-2.
“We had a slight improvement in the second period but we have not been able to instil doubt in the opponent,” said the 42-year-old Frenchman in reference to that match.
Indeed, things only picked up for Ivory Coast following the introduction of captain Didier Drogba in the 63rd minute. Drogba would go on to score during stoppage time.
Lamouchi said, “There are still positive things to remember. We were able to give playing time to some players but it is frustrating to end in defeat.”
“The next test match against El Salvador, will be an opportunity to see a team of elephants who will be closer to the one that will play the first match of the 2014 World Cup against Japan,” added Lamouchi.
