A Goal to Remember: Jonathan Kodjia’s Stunner Sends Ivory Coast to the Nations Cup

All they needed was a draw and they got it.

Thanks to Jonathan Kodija’s magnificent finish in the 36th minute of the game. However, Sierra Leone’s Kamara would equalize in the 68th minute. The draw ensures that the Ivorians will be hoping to defend their title in Gabon next year.

On the club level, Aston Villa fans will be hoping to see this kind of finishing ability when he returns from the Nations Cup.

[perfectpullquote align=”full” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]“His cracking overhead kick in the African Cup of Nations qualifier against Sierra Leone will have done his country and club proud. If he can fire in plenty of goals like that in claret and blue (or scruffy tap-ins for that matter) then the £11 million fee, potentially rising to £15 million with various add-ons, will be worth it,”[/perfectpullquote]

wrote Matt Kendrick of the Birmingham Mail.


Recently, Bristol City broke their club record when they sold Kodjia to Aston Villa.
