KALOU STILL PROUD TO PLAY FOR HIS COUNTRY

The Ivory Coast failed to make much of an impression on the last African Cup of Nations finals in Ghana two years ago, going out in the first round. The consequences were a little scary to say the least: the players were whisked off to a military camp for a week’s instruction in military discipline and patriotism. Even so, Feyenoord star Kalou still aspires to represent the Elephants at the highest level.

“It was a really difficult moment but we are trying to forget about it and concentrate on this competition,” Kalou explained in an interview with Brian Homewood of Reuters. “I love my country and if my country needs me I will always come to defend its colours, no matter what”. It was a shame that we went to the military camp because we didn't make the second round. But you cannot be angry against your country. No matter how your country treats you, you have to be proud of it. It was a different government, a military government, and now things are quite different. I don't think that will happen again in my country.”
