Côte D'Ivoire - Portugal Live Commentary

90' It's all over and one of the most disappointing matches of the World Cup so far ends goalless. Despite an array of star players on show, neither side looked like scoring apart from when Cristiano Ronaldo rattled the post in the 11th minute and not even the half second-half arrival of Didier Drogba could make a difference.
90' Ivory Coast now have a corner in what looks likes being the last action of the match. But instead of sending in a cross they play it short and wait for the final whistle.
90' It's turned into quite a frantic finish as the Ivory Coast deep into stoppage time. They have a free kick which falls to Dindane inside the box but his shot is blocked.
90' Drogba finally has a chance to pounce inside the box but he can't quite get on the end of the pass and his shot goes across the face before being cleared to safety.
90' There will be three more minutes of this to endure before the final whistle blows.
89' Time is nearly up and there's precious little ambition and urgency from either side to try and score a winning goal. They are both content with a point.
88' Ivory Coast make a change with Emmanuel Eboue coming off to be replaced by Ndri Romaric.
87' Another terrible cross from Portugal's Simao fails to beat the first man and is cleared away. There's little chance of a goal in this one.
' Alex Portlock says: "The poor crossing may have something to do with the defenders or perhaps it has something to do with ball which in my opinon has ruined the World Cup so far." Yes, maybe all those complaints about the ball should have been taken more seriously.
' Mario Jose adds to the vuvuzela debate, saying: "Just read Tony's comments regarding the Vuvuzela - how can you ban the Vuvuzelas? Its like me suggesting to ban the Portsmouth supporter when they making noise at Fratton Park." And Danny Rigby says: "Love the Vuvuzalas but I don't really hear them. All the best players in the world are there (with the exception of Scott McDonald and Rhys Williams) so many things to watch....messi's movement, snjieder's vision, cannavaro's heart to name just a few, keep the horns, it brings a bit of different culture and if ur a true football fan you won't even notice, great commentry by the way, it's a life saver at work!"
85' Filipe Ruben Amorim is brought into the action as Meireles is withdrawn.
84' Kolo Toure has gone down again with cramp. He really needs to go off for good this time.
83' We had a bit of end-to-end football there - Ivory Coast went forward and got caught offside before Portugal advanced on the counter attack, only for the ball to run away from Liedson for a goal kick. Unfortunately that constitutes excitement in this game.
' Dani Love says: "I'm checking the comments while working... Strongly agree about respect the South Africans way of celebration...But could be, at least, something a bit more harmonic or musical? This noisy vuvuzelas really makes you mad during the match... I'm brazilian and love to be in the loud-samba stadium atmosphere, but there is a limit for everything"
82' Ivory Coast make a change with Gervinho coming off to be replaced by Abdulkader Keita.
81' Ivory Coast now have a free kick which is sent deep into the area by Tiene, but Kolo Toure can't get his header on target.
80' Ronaldo will obviously take it but he can't get the ball to dip enough and his shot sails over the bar.
79' Ronaldo has gone down easily again after a challenge from Tiene and the Ivory Coast players don't like it. Nevertheless, Portugal have a free kick 35 yards out.
78' Meireles goes for goal from just outside the box but it veers well wide of the post and Barry never looked worried.
77' The defender is still on the ground, being surrounding by a number of players from both sides and the referee. Now he's being carried off the field and Ivory Coast must play on with 10.
76' Kolo Toure has gone down with what looks like cramp, so he's getting help from his team-mates to sort it out.
' Sorry if I dont' get through all your emails, my inbox is going into overdrive! Jonathan Foulds says: "Taking Paddy Murphy's comment a bit further. Can you imagine the reaction in England if Ivory Coast won the World Cup? That would mean that Sven Goran Eriksson, the coach England got rid of won the World Cup." Please don't say that!
74' The tension has taken a grip of the players - they are now too concerned about not losing than trying to win the game.
72' Zokora has gone down hurt after taking a boot in the face from Liedson but he'll be fine to continue. He made a bit of a meal of it to be honest.
70' Simao swings the ball into the box but it's headed away, unsurprisingly. The quality of the crossing has been poor today although credit must go to the defenders I suppose.
69' Portugal go up the other end and win a corner of their own after Meireles' cross is deflected behind.
68' Ivory Coast have a corner but the delivery into the box is cleared away at the near post by Coentrao.
67' Yaya Toure has a shot from range but it goes considerably wide - nothing to get excited about.
' Danny Meyer says: "I've just put a Cheeky (Risky) £10 bet on Ivory Coast to steal the win 1-0!! Eboue to score! Remember you heard it here first!" Well I think you've just thrown £10 down the drain!
67' This has been one of the most disappointing matches of the World Cup so far and we're running out of time for anything dramatic to happen. Such a shame considering the calibre of players on show.
65' The sound of the vuvuzelas are now deafening as Drogba - an iconic figure for African football - is brought into the game to replace Kalou.
' Paddy Murphy puts a different spin on today's match, saying: "I think we could be looking at the potential World Cup champions 2010. Ivory Coast look very solid and capable of stepping up a gear and with Drogba to come back they look to me like outstanding candidates to be the 1st African side to win the World Cup."
64' Drogba looks as though he'll be introduced into the game at any moment thank goodness.
' Your emails are giving me far more entertainment and food for thought. Tony Zamir says: "I disagree with you about the vuvuzelas. The noise is an offence to the senses, and has nothing whatosever to do with sport or with supporting a team. FIFA and the tournament organisers are failing in their duty, which is to ensure the enjoyment of the maximum number of enthusiasts all over the world, and to see to it that players, officials and the media (especially voice commentators) should be able to concentrate and play to the best of their ability. BAN THEM!" But who are we to tell the South African fans what the right way to support a team is? Each World Cup brings its own unique atmosphere, so I'm afraid we'll just have to disagree on this one.
61' Portugal make another change with the disappointing Deco coming off to be replaced by Tiago.
60' This time The Elephants get forward with Tiote but his cross is headed over the bar by Gervinho.
58' Gervinho has been the only bright spart in all honesty and he goes close with a shot that's blocked from a tight angle on the left.
56' Deco crosses the ball into the box but Liedson's header is well saved by Barry in the Ivory Coast goal.
54' Portugal make a change with Danny coming off to be replaced by Simao - maybe he'll inject a bit of life into this drab encounter.
53' Kalou finds himself in a position just inside the box but his fierce shot is straight at goalkeeper Eduardo.
52' Dindane advances down the wing for the Ivory Coast but his cross is headed away by Bruno Alves.
51' The midfielder swings the ball into the box but Cheik Tiote is there to head the ball away to safety.
50' Portugal now have a free kick in a promising position and Deco is the man standing over it.
49' Ivory Coast keep attacking and a fine cross from Gervinho almost finds Dindane but the striker just fails to make the connection from close range.
48' The resulting cross comes into the box but Tiote's header is comfortably saved by Eduardo. At least these are promising signs of more attacking intentions.
47' Gervinho gets down the left wing and drills a cross into the box but Portugal get the ball behind for a corner.
46' The Ivory Coast get the second half gets under way and let's hope we finally get something to shout about.
' Finally before the second half kicks off, Anshu Rythmdivine says: "Ronaldo looks relaxed, may be he is keeping it for the second round and thinks that its not yet the time to stretch out!"
' More feedback from Zor Ortiz in Puerto Rico, who says: "I really hope that things start to look up on this side.... definitely want to see Portugal do what they're damned well known for. How's the bee situation going? Still annoying?" It's annoying in some respects but I actually like it! I even bought myself one to play!
' Andy Carey is understandably feeling a bit miserable and says: "Chris, is this shaping up to be the worst World Cup ever? It sure seems that way. I'm starting to feel quite happy that I'm missing most of the games as I live in Canada!" The one word answer to your question is sadly, yes! Hopefully things will change but I feel like I've been saying that to myself after every game!
' Sky Bet's Ryan Coombs is back for a betting update and says: "Still not too much to report on at half-time and if anything it has been Ivory Coast looking more threatening as the half grew on. Portugal is still the team that everyone wants to back and are 11/8 to win from here. The only real danger of a goal is from a set piece so perhaps Siaka Tiene who may be worth a try at 33/1 to open up the scoring with his trusty left foot. For the pessimists out there 0-0 is as short as 2-1 at half time."
45' The referee blows his whistle and the less said about that dour first 45 minutes, the better. Apart from Ronaldo's superb attempt which crashed against the post, neither side looked like scoring. It's goalless in Port Elizabeth but hopefully they'll be something to shout about in the second half, so stay tuned with us!
44' There will just be a single minute of stoppage time added at the end of this uninspiring half of football.
43' With half-time approaching it seems as if both sides are content to go into the interval level at 0-0.
' Daniel Prince has emailed in and says: "Unfortunately I'm stuck at the office, but I think, as already suggested, this will be the decider as to who qualifies with Brazil. I predict, as has been the case throughout most of this tournament, a goalless first half, followed by a red card and some late drama. I reckon 2-1 to Ivory Coast." At the moment you're better off in the office than watching this, but I hope your prediction for a dramatic second half comes true!
41' The corner is pretty poor to say the least and misses everybody, eventually going out for a Portugal throw on the other side of the pitch.
40' Ivory Coast have a corner with a Demel cross on the right being deflected behind by Alexandre Fabio Coentrao.
39' It's safe to say both defences are well on top right now and there really isn't much entertainment on offer at all.
38' We haven't seen much from Salomon Kalou so far but the Chelsea man tries to cut inside from the left wing before his club team-mate Ricardo Carvalho comes in with an important challenge.
37' Yaya Toure pushes forward through the middle and threads a throughball into the box for Dindane to latch onto but Eduardo is quickly off his line to claim.
36' Gervinho gets down the right wing and sends in a cross but it's easily dealt with by the Portugal defence and the opportunity is lost.
35' Clear-cut chances have been at a premium so far so my earlier prediction of 2-1 appears to be a little optimistic. At this rate there won't be one goal, let alone three!
34' Ronaldo is drawing in a lot of fouls from the Ivory Coast - Tiene being the latest culprit - and they've got to be wary of this if they want to keep all 11 players on the pitch.
32' Da Silva Liedson tries to get on the end of a cross into the box but the delivery is too close to Barry, who comes of his line to take the ball.
' Now for a message from Sky Bet's Ryan Coombs: "It's a tense opening as expected with little in the shape of clear cut opportunities. Ronaldo has rattled the woodwork though with a piledriver and looks a decent 4/1 shot to score the first goal. The draw is shortening up rapidly in the run and is 13/8 now 25 minutes in. With chances at a premium it may pay dividends to look elsewhere though and 10/11 for 0-1 total goals could well be a gift."
30' Deco comes forward trying to find a way through but his pass to Danny is collected by goalkeeper Boubacar Barry inside the box.
29' Kolo Toure looks an assured figure at the back for The Elephants and Portugal certainly have their work cut out to get past him today.
28' Apart from Ronaldo's stunning effort earlier on, at the moment it's fair to say Ivory Coast are doing most of the attacking and look most likely to score first.
27' Emmanuel Eboue swings the ball into the box towards the near post but Bruno Alves is there for Portugal with the clearance.
26' Dindane appeals for a penalty when he's tackled by Ricardo Carvalho inside the box but instead he has to be content with a corner.
25' Ronaldo chases a long ball down the left wing at high speed but his attempted cross is blocked by a determined Demel.
24' The ball is curled into the box by Tiene but goalkeeper Carvalho Eduardo makes a comfortable catch.
23' Ivory Coast are awarded a free kick around 25 yards from goal after a foul from Jose Raul Meireles on Aruna Dindane .
' Ben Brickell has sent me his thoughts on this group as a whole and says: "Brazil will be the first team to put away one of the 'minnows' this evening against North Korea. It could be about 5-0! As for Portugal v Ivory Coast, I can see both sides scoring and neither side settling for a draw, so I'm optimistically predicting a 3-2 result to either side
21' Gervinho is the main man for Ivory Coast at the moment as he bursts into the area before a superb tackle from Paulo Ferreira stops him in his tracks.
20' It's quite heated out there and the importance of this clash is certainly not lost on the players.
19' Ronaldo takes a bit of a dive under pressure from Guy Demel, who then acts angrily towards the Real Madrid star. No free kick is given but the referee books Demel for his aggressive reaction.
18' The referee has a job on his hands as the Ivory Coast players are seemingly losing their cool with Ronaldo.
17' With a side like Brazil also in this group, this match could effectively be the decider as to who goes through with the South Americans, so you can understand why there is a feeling of tension in the air.
16' Anyway, back to the match and Cheik Tiote tries his luck from range but he blazes his shot high over the bar.
15' It's hard to concentrate with this constant noise of a vicious swarm of bees but it's something we must embrace rather than complain about!
14' Siaka Tiene takes it, but curls his effort well wide of the post.
13' Ivory Coast have an opportunity to open the scoring with a promising free kick from around 20 yards out after a foul from Eduardo Bruno Alves on Gervinho.
12' There's no sign of the sound of the vuvuzelas being silenced - they're out in full force today!
11' Ronaldo comes agonisingly close to scoring the best goal of the World Cup so far, but his stunning drive from long range crashes against the post.
10' This time the African side get the ball away to safety and the danger passes for now.
9' Ivory Coast defend Deco's resulting corner competently enough and put it behind for another.
8' Only Ronaldo would attempt to score from here! He takes his time before blasting his shot towards the goal but the ball takes a wicked deflection before going behind for a corner.
7' The Ivory Coast players are protesting to the referee over that but he obviously won't change his mind and Portugal have a free kick around 35 yards from goal.
6' Moments later Ronaldo goes down easily under minimal contact from Didier Zokora and Larrionda immediately shows the yellow card to the Sevilla man.
5' It hasn't taken long for Ronaldo to try and get the attention of today's referee, Jorge Larrionda from Uruguay, as he falls to the ground after a challenge in midfield.
4' Here comes Yao Gervinho down the right for the Ivory Coast but his low cross is comfortably cleared away to safety.
3' Ivory Coast don't look fazed though and are also eager to lap up the possession and move forward sharply.
2' Carlos Queiroz's side are showing early signs of promise as they pass the ball around confidently while Cristiano Ronaldo already looks keen to get involved.
1' Portugal get this World Cup Group G encounter against Ivory Coast underway in Port Elizabeth.
' The first email of the day comes from Tony Connell from Dublin, who says: "Let us hope that this game lifts what is an appalling World Cup in terms of excitement. All the 'minnows' have concentrated on building a wall around their goals and hoping for a goal from a set piece. I reckon 2-1 to Portugal or 2-2 with Ronaldo or Carvalho to score first." It's nice to see someone thinking the same as me in terms of the scoreline!
' Ivory Coast are now 11/4 for victory with Sky Bet following the news that Didier Drogba will start on the bench while Portugal are 21/20, with the draw available at 9/4. Although Drogba is now unlikely to score the first goal of the game, there could be value backing him at 4/1 to score the last. His replacement, Aruna Dindane Dindane is 15/2 to open the scoring although Cristiano Ronaldo unsurprisingly heads this market at 4/1. My tip would be for a 2-1 win for Portugal, available at 9/1, while with several tough tacklers in these line-ups, it could be wise going for over 65 bookings points at 11/8.
' Well, as you can see from the team sheet, Ivory Coast striker Didier Drogba has been named among the substitutes, just 10 days after breaking his arm. The 32-year-old Chelsea frontman, who was last night cleared to play in the game wearing a protective cast, is kept in reserve by manager Sven-Goran Eriksson. Drogba suffered a fractured ulna during his country's warm-up game against Japan in Switzerland on June 4 and it was initially feared he could miss the finals - fortunately he's here today if only as a sub. As far as Portugal are concerned, they will be hoping their talisman Cristiano Ronaldo will fire them to victory, but to say their talents end with the Real Madrid man would be a big mistake. They've got plenty of flair in the side, despite their difficulties in qualification while Deco, who is set to retire from international football at the end of the tournament, will want to go out on a high.
' The Portugal team is: Eduardo, Ferreira, Bruno Alves, Carvalho, Fabio Coentrao, Deco, Mendes, Raul Meireles, Ronaldo, Liedson, Danny. Subs: Beto, Rolando, Duda, Simao, Miguel, Veloso, Pepe, Ruben Amorim, Hugo Almeida, Tiago, Ricardo Costa, Fernandes.
' The Ivory Coast team is: Barry, Demel, Toure, Zokora, Tiene, Eboue, Toure Yaya, Tiote, Gervinho, Dindane, Kalou. Subs: Zogbo, Angoua, Gohouri, Doumbia, Drogba, Gosso, Romaric, Kone, Keita, Bamba, Yeboah.
