Kolo Toure marked his return to
international football after a drugs ban with a goal on Sunday
but it was brother Yaya Toure who ensured Ivory Coast finished
with the only 100 percent record in the African Nations Cup
Yaya Toure's injury-time goal gave the Ivorians a modest 2-1
win over Burundi in Abidjan to ensure six wins out of six in
The Ivorians had already made sure of their qualification
berth by the halfway mark of the campaign.
Kolo Toure opened the scoring in the 77th minute but Burundi
equalised through Dugary Ndabashinze with five minutes left,
only to have a credible result snatched from them on the stroke
Kolo Toure ended a six months drug ban one day before the
Ivorians' last qualifier in Rwanda in early September but
although a part of the squad for that match, did not play.
