World Cup 2010, Cote D'Ivoire Vs. North Korea: Les Elephants Off Pace Despite 2-0 Lead

Cote d’Ivoire got two goals within 20 minutes versus North Korea, but having come into the match needing to turn-around a nine goal difference with Portugal, Les Elephants find them off-the-pace for advancing to the knockout stage.

The goal difference may be inconsequential. Portugal needs to lose to Brazil, and the Seleccao have done into halftime drawn 0-0 with the Selecao.

The Ivorians, however, have gotten goals from Yaya Touré and Romaric to take a commanding lead on the North Koreans, putting them on-track for their first win of the 2010 World Cup.
