Match-Up: Will Ivory Coast defeat North Korea by 2+ Goals?
Essentially, both the Ivory Coast and North Korea squads have been eliminated from the World Cup. Barring an eight plus goal barrage by the Ivory Coast, coupled with a Portugal loss to Brazil, the Ivory Coast would be the second-to-last African team sent home.
Both the Ivory Coast and North Korea were embarrassed in their previous matches. Ivory Coast looked lost in their 3-0 loss to Brazil while North Korea suffered the worst defeat during the World Cup, a 7-0 beat down by the hands of Portugal.
I definitely expected a spirited performance by Ivory Coast. Drogba is way too talented to not win a game at the World Cup. North Korea has looked lost for the entire tournament and I expect Ivory Coast to put on a show.
The Pick: Ivory Coast by 2+ Goals
June Record: 11-13
