Cape Town - The 'Elephants' of Cote d'Ivoire will be the best performing African side at this year's Soccer World Cup in Brazil - if bookmakers are to be believed...

Leading SA bookies, BetFlash, have installed the West African side as 7/5 favourites to progress further in the tournament than their four fellow African contemporaries.

Ghana (11/4) and Nigeria (13/4) follow next, with Cameroon (9/1) and Algeria (11/1) considered outsiders.

Ivory Coast, spearheaded by striker Didier Drogba and midfielder Yaya Toure, will play in Group C alongside Colombia, Greece and Japan.
