Yaya and Kolo Toure to stay in Brazil despite the death of their brother Ibrahim
Yaya and Kolo Toure have decided to stay with the Ivory Coast squad in Brazil following the death of their brother, a team spokesman has confirmed.
Ibrahim Toure, a 28-year-old player with the Lebanon-based Al Safa, died in Manchester on Thursday. He had been suffering from cancer.
Reports had claimed the brothers would leave Brazil to be with their family, but a team spokesman said that they would remain at the World Cup.
Ivory Coast face Greece in Fortaleza on Tuesday and a win will see them qualify for the last 16.
