The second game on the fifth day was between Ivory Coast and Portugal, both teams have great players, but specifically who called our attention, do you know who they are? How was this game? Keep reading to know this full story plus check out the photos and video below.
Group G teams from Portugal and Ivory Coast were ready to play also the rain was ready to make its presence at Port Elizabeth in South Africa, giving the players a hard time, especially to the players of Ivory Coast, whose fans were still wondering and hoping if Didier Drogba was going to play after his elbow surgery.
Portugal on the other hand has their handsome captain Cristiano Ronaldo who was tackled a bit harsh by Didier Zokora (got a yellow card on the 6 Minute) who threw a 35 yard killer shot that struck on the left post, and took his rivals totally by surprise. For Cristiano to be at the World Cup when all eyes are on him and the pressure of taking his country to the next step is overwhelming, but as usual he is savoring every second showing why he is the center of attention not just by female fans, but of the world. Cristiano received a yellow card by Uruguayan referee Jorge Larrionda on the 21 minute and then the first half of the match ended, without a goal.
In the second half Ivory Coast fans were happy and excited to see that in the 65 minute Didier Drogba made his entrance on the field, but still with him and Deco also joined his Portugal’s pals, we couldn’t have the score open, although Ivory Coast tried harder in the end, with no luck. Now they will have to wait for their next opponents on June 21 where Ivory Coast will face Brazil and Portugal will try their luck with Korea.
