Good luck tonight to Cheick Tiote who could become the latest Newcastle United player to win a medal (I seem to remember Newcastle signing Stephane Guivarc’h before France lifted the World Cup in ’98, so I don’t know if he would count as the last? I’m obviously not including our promotion after a ridiculous relegation!).
Along with his Ivory Coast team mates, Cheick will line-up against Zambia in the final of the African Cup Of Nations at 7.30pm UK time.
The Ivory Coasters are massive favourites to lift the cup and five wins with no goals conceded sums up the professional job they’ve done so far.
The match is televised live on Eurosport and ITV4 so tune in to see Tiote show us the way to silverware.
