Cote d’ Ivoire 0-0 Portugal

Cote d’ Ivoire  Tuesday, played a goalless draw with Portugal in its first Group G match at Port Elizabeth, South Africa.

Didier Drogba’s introduction into the match at the 66th minute could  not change the  outcome , as both countries   have  a  point each on the group’s table.   However, Brazil will play  North Korea in its first game in the 2010 tournament at 21.30hrs Nigerian time.
