Even tho de score on Tuesday match for inside de Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace mean say Ivory Coast and Tunisia be de same wit three point for inside Group D, de way dem take win sha, no be de same.

De tin wey Ivory Coast and Tunisia get sha; dem no tao beta ball even tho demk win.

Ivory Coast, wey dia beta playa like Didier Drogba, Kolo Toure, Didier Zokora and Emmanuel Eboue, dey play dia las card, since dem win de cup for 1992, bin dey make plenti mistake and demk no even resemble demsef.

Dia skippo, Didier Drogba, dey try join Nations Cup wit de Champions Lig and Premier Lig wey he don win wen he dey Chelsea, but he no tap ball well sotay hin coachi comot am wen time remain 16 minit to finish.

”De match bin tuff, but we sef know say na so e go be,” na im Drogba tok. “Togo bin play us well, well but we sef bin make plenti mistake and na wetin we go try coret for de oda match dem. Anyhow e be sha, na 2-1 we take win dem.”


Na Ivory Coast all man dey look fir Nations Cup, say fit win am, but na so dem dey waka comot everitime, in fact, na penarity dem bilala dem for 2006 and 2012.

Anyhow sha, dem bin show all man one gree-die wey persin wey wan be champion dey get – dem still win even tho dem no tap beta ball.

”I bin dey tink say we go tap pass wetin I see,” na im dia coachi, Sabri Lamouchi, bin yarn. “We don tap beta ball pass dis one bifor. I bin sabi say de fess match go hard, but dis one bin hard pass as I tink am.”

”We make many mistake o, but my belle still sweet with how we play and we go beta as we dey play dey go.”

Insted make Adebayor waya shot, he wan drinble Ivory Coast goalie, Boubacar Barry, but de goalie comot de ball from Adebayor leg.

Adebayor sef tok am say hin no do well, but no be so Yaya Toure bin do, as hin no waste time at all, to waya beta shot as he score Ivory Coast fess goal wen time jus dey eight minit for clock.

Even tho Jonathan Ayite bin equalise for Togo as fess haf wan finish, wen Ivory Coast defendas dey do sme-sme, dem still no fit get any point.

De onli small gbege wey bin dey for de sweet match hapin for second haf, wen Togo playa Dare Nibombe score header from corner kick, but de refree wey come from Cameroon tok say dem no wait make he blow wisu; he no gree de goal.

Pipu no too halla wen e hapin, but Togo coachi, Didier Six bin nvex sotay, wen match finish he waka comot from amebo dem, becos, as hin tok, de tin no good at all.

”Dem no gree do de coret tin.”
