Sylvain Gbohouo was born on 29 October, 1988. He is an Ivorian footballer who plays for Mazembe as a goalkeeper. He has represented Côte d’Ivoire at international level. Gbohouo made his debut for the national team on 6 July 2013 in a 4-1 loss against Nigeria at the 2014 African Nations Championship qualification.
He was part of the team that played in the 2014 FIFA World Cup but did not make an appearance. He was Côte d’Ivoire’s starting goalkeeper at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations as they went all the way to the final, but a thigh injury sustained in the semi-final against DR Congo saw him miss out the final match in favour of veteran Boubacar Barry. He was still named the tournament’s best goalkeeper, and since Barry’s retirement Gbohouo has been the Elephants’ undisputed number one.
