The season is not over for Eric Bailly, at least for now, as the Ivory Coast has selected the young Villarreal defender for an international fixture against Gabon that's good for the qualification of the 2017 African Cup of Nations. The match will count as a mere friendly since Gabon are automatically qualified as hosts but it will be a good preparation match for the Ivory Coast, who are the defending African Cup of Nation champions.

Good luck for Bailly in his traveling to African lands!.
