PEEEEEEEP PEEEEEEP PEEP – Game over. Brazil are through to the next round. Ivory Coast have it all to do against North Korea.
94:00 – Fabiano wins a free kick and rolls around theatrically. He is forcefully helped by the Ivorians and shows his displeasure in being helped.
91:00 – Lovely cross that gets headed across goal that Julio Cesar acrobatically pushes clear.
3 minutes of added time
87:00 – Total meltdown by both teams as fists fly as Keita runs into Kaka. Ref is conned and gives Kaka another yellow and his marching orders. Not the ref’s fault but Keita should be embarrassed.
85:00 – Argy Bargy going on
79:00 – GOOOOOAALLLL – Drogba – Gervinho runs from one penalty box to another but he is finally cut off, comes back, passes it Yaya Toure and he sends a beautiful ball to an unmarked Drogba who easily heads it into the net. Brazil 3 – Ivory Coast 1
72:00 – Ivory Coast lack any creativity right now, however a long range effort is well saved by Julio Cesar.
65:00 – Elano gets caught in a nasty challenge and needs to be stretchered off. Dani Alves comes in to replace him. Keita now comes on for Kalou.
63:00 – GOOOOOOALLLLL ELANO. Terrible defending by Ivory Coast as Kaka runs to the byline and cuts the ball back for Elano as Zakora is caught ball watching and the Brazilian midfielder easily slots it home. Brazil 3 – Ivory Coast 0
62:00 – Brazil back to their Joga Bonita best as they have an inter change of exquisite passing but the final ball is shot straight at Barry.
54:00 – Drogba gets a free header but sends it agonizingly wide. The Chelsea man should have done better.
50:00 – GOOOOOOOOOOAAALLL – LUIS FABIANO. A breakdown in the Ivorian defense as he brings the ball down and dribbles around several defenders maybe touching the ball a couple of times with his hand and fires it into the back of the net. Brazil 2 – Ivory Coast 0
