Cote d’Ivoire coach Herve Renard is confident key man Yaya Toure will have a stellar game in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations finals against Ghana on Sunday.
The Elephants face the Black Stars team that has defied all odds to make it all the way to the finals of the competition being staged in Equatorial Guinea.
Yaya Toure, who is the star man in the Ivorian side has only started living up to his huge billing after enduring a difficult start to the tournament.
The Manchester City star scored a screamer of a goal to help the side into the grand finale and Renard expects the rising form of his captain to continue.
“What I am sure is that Yaya Toure will play a very good game,” he said.
“The semi final proved it and he scored a great goal which is not by luck.
“This is a very important game and players like that are always ready for these kind of games.
“For them there is no pressure. For Yaya Toure I am sure he will play a very good final.
“I don’t know whether Asamoah Gyan will play this game.”
