Ivory Coast progress, Toure and Bony miss Chelsea game

Ivory Coast secured a 1-0 win over Cameroon earlier today thanks to a Max Gradel strike to put them into the quarter-finals of the African Cup of Nations, ending faint hopes of an early return for Yaya Toure and Wilfried Bony

They now move on to face Algeria in the last eight this weekend with this of course meaning that Toure and Bony will not be available to face Chelsea this Saturday at Stamford Bridge.

It was not all good news for Ivory Coast though (and potentially City) as Toure was forced off through injury during the latter stages although his likely participation in the knockout stages is not yet known.
