(At a Glance)
Date of Birth: Dec/30/1979

Place of Origin: Cote d'Ivoire

Boubacar "Copa" Barry is a Ivorian football goalkeeper who currently, as of May 2007, plays for K.S.C. Lokeren. In Belgium, he plays under the football name of "Copa", however, in the national team of the Ivory Coast, his football name is his regular name.

The undisputed No.1 choice for the Ivory Coast has been playing his club football in Belgium for the last three years and if the most fancied of the African teams are to shine in the World Cup this summer, they will need Barry to eradicate any errors.

With most of the power in this Elephants side operating in the attacking third, the feeling is Barry can be exposed at the back and yet he is capable of pulling off the most agile of saves when he is tested. A veteran of the 2006 World Cup finals squad, he is convinced the Ivorians moment has arrived.

"We know the pressure is on us, but we now have a great coach in Sven Goran Eriksson and a squad that can beat anyone when we are at our best," says this former Beveren and Stade Rennes stopper. "We all need to be united and make the most of the opportunity in front of us."

He has 42 caps for the national team, and was called up to the 2006 World Cup. He appeared in the final group match against Serbia and Montenegro in 22 June 2006, which Côte d'Ivoire won 3-2.
