World Cup 2010 - Toure captains Cote d'Ivoire in goalless draw

City captain Kolo Toure led Cote d'Ivoire to a largely predictable goalless draw against Portugal in their opening group game today.

Despite plenty of billing, with Brazil also drawn in the group the game was always likely to be a tense affair as the spectre of defeat loomed large for both sides and a cagey, tense affair ensued.

It is now set to be an interesting pair of games for both sides given they both have to face Brazil and North Korea, but given the stoic performance of North Korea later in the day though, an easy three points is not necessarily guaranteed, meaning both sides may look to also try and take something from their fixture against Brazil.
