He has been waiting for this moment for long and now that it is upon the continent, he just cannot wait to be through with it. That is the story of four-time CAF African player of the year winner, Yaya Toure, who is on the cusp of history, as he leads out the Ivorians for the final match of the 2015 AFCON against Ghana tomorrow in Malabo.
For all his heroics on the pitch, winning laurels upon laurels from Spain to England, the towering Manchester City midfielder is yet to win the biggest prize in African football, the AFCON title.
But all that can become history tomorrow when the the two west African giants face off in a match that observers have dubbed fantasy football.
Toure scored an eye-popping goal in the 3-1 spanking of D.R. Congo in the semifinals, his only goal of the tournament and with about 24 hours to the kickoff of the final match, the former Barcelona star has told reporters that the Elephants will trample on their enterprising Ghanaian foes.
“We just want to get this match done with. A lot is being said of this game but the way I see it is that we are going to face a great battle from Ghana but I am sure that we would win this battle.
“Ghana are a great side but I don’t think that they can stop our drive for the title. They must go for us to come out tops”, added Toure.
