[*] match not recognized as full A-international by FIFA, but it is for the Ivory Coast FA

NB: the match against Mali (2-1, 27- 5-12 in Saint-Leu-la-Foręt, France) was
    originally annulled by the French FA because of missing FIFA permission;
    the two teams were eventually allowed to stage the match but it was not
    a full A-international match;
    for the match against Nigeria Team (1-0, 11- 1-15 in Abu Dhabi) FIFA
    did not get any documentation beforehand; it was not approved by FIFA
    and thus not a full A international match.
