El Salvador vs. Ivory Coast, 2014 World Cup friendly: Preview, TV schedule and how to watch online

Jeff Curry

Ivory Coast look set to start some of their biggest names in Wednesday's friendly against El Salvador.

Ivory Coast boss Sabri Lamouchi looks set to field some of Ivory Coast's biggest stars in their final pre-World Cup friendly against El Salvador in Texas. That's after an experimental team fell 2-1 to Bosnia-Herzegovina on the weekend, meaning Les Éléphants have only won once in their last six matches.

After the Bosnia defeat, Lamouchi cut five players from his squad, with the 23 left all heading to Brazil. That means he'll likely use this match to help iron out some final tactical and personnel problems, and give his side a much-needed confidence boost after an underwhelming run of form.

His only concern is over defender Kolo Touré, whose status is in doubt after recently contracting malaria.

Match Date/Time: Wednesday, 8 p.m. local, 9 p.m. ET

Venue: Toyota Stadium, Frisco, Texas

TV: beIN Sports (U.S. and Canada - English), beIN Sports en Español, Univision Deportes (U.S. - Spanish), SuperSport 5 Africa (Ivory Coast)
