Kessie gives Ivory Coast a 2-1 victory over Saudi Arabia

Les Éléphants of Ivory Coast are expected to have the best chance when it comes to making noise for African football in the Tokyo Summer Olympics men’s tournament, and a goal from AC Milan’s Franck Kessie was the difference in their 2-1 victory over Saudi Arabia. After the teams traded goals in the first half, Manchester United starlet Amad Diallo cut inside from the right wing on the dribble and passed over to Kessie, who did brilliantly to turn past a Saudi defender and unleash a clinical finish to put Ivory Coast up 2-1.

The Associated Press has a brief recap of the match in the link below and video of the goals are further below.
