Ivory Coast will be based in Sao Paulo during the June-July World Cup in Brazil, revealed Elephants coach Sabri Lamouchi.

The top-ranked African side will stay at the Oscar Inn Eco Resort.

Lamouchi also said they are likely to start their World Cup build-up in Portugal, and will play two friendlies before travelling to Brazil.

"We need to go to Brazil with a lot of humility and to come back with our heads held high," said Lamouchi.

Ivory Coast are in Group C alongside Japan, Colombia and Greece.
