Gervinho Heads Back to Arsenal

Gervinho’s Ivory Coast were knocked out of the African Cup of Nations at the Quarter-Final stage, despite being favourites to win the competition.

At 1-1 with Nigeria, there were just 15 minutes to go and it seemed to be heading for extra-time. Unfortunately for Ivory Coast and Arsenal fans alike, Nigeria scored the winner and sealed their place in the Semi-Finals, while Gervinho’s place was sealed on the flight back to London.

He won’t be available for selection for a week or two still, but the thought he could have been unavailable for a little bit longer put false hope in many Arsenal fans hearts. This was somewhat of anti-climax.

Hopefully he can perform at a higher level, if Wenger’s stubbornness elects for him to play.
