Arsenal @ The World Cup part 4… why did I start this?

Match 5

Argentina (2) V's The Ivory Coast (1)



The Ivory Coast go into the World Cup with the label as the best African team ever with 2 Arsenal defenders, Kolo Toure and Emmanuel Eboue, with possibly a future gooner Yaya Toure in the midfield amongst their team.


After a very open 23 mins, Riquelme swings in a free kick, and Chelsea scum Crespo, gets a couple of studs on the ball to prod it by the helpless Ivorian keeper – 1 Nil Argentina. 14 minutes later, a dubious offside goal by Saviola makes it 2 Nil.


 81 minutes, before Drogba, pulls back a deserved goal for The Ivory Coast.


Dirty cheating, diving Argies manage to scrape a win in their first game against World Cup first timers.

Best game so far.
