Yaya Toure blasts half-volley howitzer

If you weren’t already aware of Yaya Toure’s power, grab hold of something and watch his latest goal for Ivory Coast at the African Cup of Nations.

The midfielder smashed his nation into the lead in the semi-final against DR Congo with an absolute howitzer of a half-volley, almost ripping the net from its frame in the process.



Oof. DR Congo ‘keeper Robert Kidiaba should be glad he wasn’t in the way.


Toure’s side conceded an equaliser shortly after his 20th minute piledriver, but recaptured the lead through Gervinho before sealing victory via defender Wilfried Kanon.


Ivory Coast will now meet Ghana in the final on Monday morning Australian time.
