I don't pretend to be any expert, but they're clearly no mugs as they qualified ahead of Cameroon & Egypt.
I think practically the whole squad play in Europe (mainly France) so they have experience of the conditions & style of play. Drogba is their top-boy &, despite him not being a favourite of mine with his penchant for theatrics & subtle hand-balls, will be a genuine threat. He has pace & a real physical presence. I haven't seen much of him, but Arsenal have just had a £9 million bid for Yaya Toure (Kolo's kid bro) turned down by Olympiakos (sp?), so he must be pretty useful.
&, of course, any team with Kolo Toure & Manu Eboue can't be all bad!
