Kolo Toure fancies Ivory Coast's chances

Liverpool and Ivory Coast international Kolo Toure has tipped his country to surprise many people at the World Cup. The Ivorians have a relatively easy group for the tournament, going up against Colombia, Japan and Greece.



33-year-old defender Toure has tipped his country to go far in this summer's tournament as they prepare for the crucial match against Japan.

"Just going further than we've ever done before will be a triumph in itself," Toure quipped.

"I'm not setting any limits on what we can achieve. Why can't we spring a surprise and make it to the final? We've got the ability to do just that."
