The 18-year-old boy scored a late goal when the Elephants fought back from behind to win
On Saturday, Ivory Coast defeated Burkina Faso with a 2-1 reversal. Manchester United striker Amad Traore scored the winning goal.
In the 15th minute, Ajax star Lassina Traore opened the scoring at Alassane Ouattara D’Ebimpe, and the efforts of the two sides separated during the intermission.
Later in the second half, Ibrahim Sangare used his equalizer in the 72nd minute to inspire Ivory Coast’s counterattack, and the game ended in a draw until Traore’s excellent stoppage time.
The Manchester United teenager scored GSI’s first international goal for the Elephants with a free kick in the 97th minute.
Traore was invited by the national team for the first time this year and made his debut in the African Cup of Nations qualifier against Niger on March 26.
Patrice Beaumelle’s goal is to stay in good shape when he heads to Cape Coast for another friendly against Ghana on June 12.
