Ivory Coast have named former Belgium international Marc Wilmots as their new head coach to replace Michel Dussuyer, who quit the Elephants after the 2017 African Cup of Nations.
The 48-year-old Wilmots who was coach of Belgium between 2012 and 2016 and lead them to the World Cup in Brazil, has signed a two-year contract with an option to renew.
He will get the chance to see his new team in action as Ivory Coast play two friendlies against Russia and Senegal.
