IVORY Coast coach Herve Renard has announced his 23-man squad to travel to the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations Finals in Equatorial Guinea.

Renard announced his final squad for the continental showpiece, which kicks-off on 17 January, featuring Premier League stars Yaya and Kolo Toure, Cheick Titote, and Wilfred Bony.
