Video: Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha Performs Dance In Ivory Coast Initiation At AFCON

Crystal Palace were without star man Wilfried Zaha as they slumped to defeat at West Ham on Saturday.

The 3-0 defeat to the Hammers means Sam Allardyce is still searching for his first win as Eagles boss, while the team haven’t won in their last seven Premier League games.

Dancing Zaha

But while his club side were struggling on the pitch, Zaha was going through his initiation with the Ivory Coast squad in Gabon.

Since it was his first trip with the Elephants, Zaha was tasked with entertaining the rest of his international team-mates.

The former Manchester United starlet had stand up on stage in front of everyone and perform a dance.

You can check out how he got on in the video below:

Struggling on

Palace will have to struggle on without the forward for the next few weeks while he’s on international duty.

Their latest defeat leaves them hovering dangerously above the relegation zone in 17th spot.

Up next it’s FA cup action for Allardyce’s men as they host Bolton in the third round at Selhurst Park on Tuesday night.
