Ivory Coast have been tipped to shine at this year's World Cup by German legend Franz Beckenbauer.

The only man to have won the World Cup as a player and coach believes that if the Elephants can qualify from their group, they could become the first African nation to make the final of the summer showpiece.

He said: "If Ivory Coast can get out of their group, I can see them getting all the way to the final.

The West Africans will have it all to do though after being drawn in Group C with Argentina, Holland and Serbia and Montenegro.
