The Ivory Coast national team will be without captain Didier Drogba, key defender Kolo Toure and star midfielder Yaya Toure for Wednesday's friendly with Guinea.

Chelsea striker Drogba along with Manchester City's Toure brothers will miss the meeting after the Ivorian Football Federation (FIF) confirmed they would be unavailable with varying degrees of injury.

Ivory Coast head coach Francois Zahoui was planning to play a strong team in the match in Abidjan to help atone for the loss to Zambia in the African Cup of Nations final but will have to make do without a trio of his best players.
