An injury to Arsenal defender Kolo Toure was the only negative point as Ivory Coast cruised into the knockout stages of the African Nations Cup with a 4-1 thrashing of Benin.

Toure was carried off on a stretcher due to a groin problem shortly before half-time and soon after setting up a goal for his brother Yaya in the Elephants´ empathic Group B win in Sekondi, Ghana.

Team-mate Didier Drogba, who scored the opening goal, said: "We don´t know how bad it is. We´re worried, but we´re keeping our fingers crossed."
