Few minutes barelly passed and Ivory Coast did it again. The score is now North Korea 0-2 Ivory Coast
24 Ivory Coast fans have their backs turned on the play, which I think speaks volumes about their confidence in their team securing victory today.
23 North Korea have a free-kick in a dangerous position. Tiote is the guilty party, and 25-yards from goal, Hong curls it just wide of the upright.
22 Nearly more trouble as Drogba gets his head on a cross, but the ball is deflected away by North Korea. No corner given, though, and the goal survives another beating.
20 The record books will show Romaric got the goal – but Drogba deserves all the credit. The Chelsea striker takes down a floated cross, and in one movement, rolls his man before smashing a half-volley against the underside of the bar. It bounces back out and Romaric is on hand to nod it past the stranded keeper. 2-0 Ivory Coast.
GOAL! 2-0 IVORY COAST!
19 Hong rattles it toward goal and it flies just wide. Not a bad effort from the midfielder, but Barry’s gloves remain untroubled.
18 North Korea win a free-kick in their opponents half to earn a bit of respite.
16 Romaric has just hit the post. The midfielder has the ball on the wide right before cutting inside and curling an effort on his left foot. It looks destined for the bottom corner but it cannons back off the upright. Unlucky.
15 Ivory Coast are raiding again. North Korea can’t get near them as they come forward.
13 Toure is the hero as he shapes up a delightful shot into the bottom corner. The Barcalona curled that beyond the grasp of Myong-Guk Ri from the edge of the area and it’s 1-0. It’s been coming, you have to say. Will the flood gates open?
GOAL! 1-0 IVORY COAST!
