Aston Villa's Jonathan Kodjia scored the winner as Ivory Coast edged past South Africa in their opening Group D encounter.

Kodjia missed from 10 yards on 31 minutes when SA goalkeeper Ronwen Williams made a wonderful reaction save. But in the second half, Kodjia latched on to Max Gradel's on-the-plate pass before he side-footed through the legs of Williams.

Nicolas Pepe struck the woodwork in the first half, while Thulani Hlatshwayo headed inches over the bar for South Africa with the score still goalless.

The Lyon attacker had another spot-kick late in the second half but Williams had all the quality to make another incredible save.
