Wilfred Zaha scored his first goal for Africa Cup of Nations champions Cote d'Ivoire in a 3-0 win against Uganda in a friendly game on Wednesday at the New York Stadium, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.


Zaha scored in the 58th minute to make it 2-0 in favour of Cote d'Ivoire.

Jonathan Kodjia had given Cote d'Ivoire the lead in the 51st minute, while Serge Aurier made it 3-0.

In his debut for Cote d'Ivoire, Zaha came off the bench and provided an assist in a 2-1 friendly win against Sweden last week.

Cote d'Ivoire are in Group C at this year's AFCON with Morocco, Democratic Republic of Congo and Togo.

Uganda, who will be returning to the AFCON for the first time since 1978, are in Group D with Ghana, Egypt and Mali.
