Ivory Coast should end first, while Algeria nad Tunisia will battle for the second spot. I give small advantage to Algeria. Togo has no chances.

Adebayor should have put Togo ahead only 2 minutes in, one on one with the keeper but didn't even get a shot on target alm:

Yaya Toure puts Ivory Coast ahead only 7 minutes into the match, good run by Gervinho down the right and finds Yaya Toure who rifles a shot into the net

8' 1-0 to the Elephants, Yaya finishes well after a good work by Gervinho.

Almost at break time Yaya Touré almost scores a copycat of the first goal but this time he hit the post.

Ivory Coast 1-1 Togo at HT

A not very well played first half with too many fouls and too little speed. Ivory Coast seems to come to this CAN with their usual arrogant attitude towards their opponents and Togo is, as expected, little more than a one man show.

Togo score from a corner kick but the ref ordered it to be retaken, guess they took it too quickly

Lacina Traore is the future. Drogba is the past.

At 88' Gervinho makes it 2-1 after a freekick cross by Yaya Touré. The keeper didn't look good there but it was a good finish.

Ivory Coast 2-1 Togo - FT

The Ivorians can consider themselves lucky with this win as they had a pretty disappointing performance. Togo looked lively on some counters but they just lack creativity.

Drogba was awful today, CIV probably didn't deserve three points but poor goalkeeping helped them score the winner.
