Manchester City Midfielder Yaya Toure Yet To Report For International Duty With Ivory Coast Ahead Of Their Friendlies Against Togo and Moldova

Yaya Toure is yet to report for international duty, the Ivorian Football Federation has confirmed.

The Manchester City midfielder was recalled by Ivory Coast for their upcoming friendlies against Togo and Moldova inĀ France, on March 24 and 27 respectively, after a three-year absence.

The 34-year-old retired from international football after captaining his country to African Nations Cup glory in 2015 but declared his availability again last December.

Toure, who has 102 caps, was not present as the squad assembled for training on Tuesday.

A report on the Federation Ivoirienne de Football’s website, http://www.fifciv.com read: ‘The Ivory Coast coaching staff is without news of the Elephants’ winning captain of the 2015 African Nations Cup.’

Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha has been ruled out of the friendlies through injury.
