Ivory Coast v Japan
The evergreen Didier Drogba will be the focal point of the Ivory Coast attack as he plays in his last World Cup, and he certainly won't be lacking in support with Yaya Toure - so impressive in the Premier League this year with Manchester City - providing the firepower in midfield.
The Elephants have never made it out of the group stages of the World Cup and begin their campaign in Recife against a Japanese side coached by former Milan and Juventus boss, Alberto Zaccehroni.  Matt Smith presents live coverage of this group C game alongside former England men - Glenn Hoddle, Ian Wright and Lee Dixon; with commentary from Gary Bloom.
