|6/1||Wilfried Bony is 6/1 with William Hill to be Ivory Coast's top scorer at the World Cup|
The Ivorians have been drawn in Group C along with Colombia, Japan and Greece, and in such a competitive group, Bony knows how crucial it is to get off to a strong start.
"To play in the World Cup - the biggest tournament in the world of sport - is a massive moment for my country," he told the club's official website.
"For me, it doesn't get any bigger than this. My first World Cup in Brazil is more than a dream. I've watched the World Cup all of my life, and now I get to play in one.
"It's a 50-50 group. Any team could win it or finish bottom. The first game is hugely important against Japan. If we could win that game then it would really give us a good chance of progressing.
"As a team, we achieve everything together, and that is something we pride ourselves on."
