VIDEO: Yaya Toure blasts in screamer in Ivory Coast’s Africa Cup of Nations semifinal


When big Yaya Toure gets hold of one, he can absolutely crush a ball.

The Manchester City midfielder blasted the Ivory Cost into an early lead during their Africa Cup of Nations semifinal against DR Congo on Wednesday.

Toure, 31, got free on the edge of the box and his new Man City teammate Wilfried Bony teed the ball up perfectly into his path. Yaya ran onto it and then unleashed the beast as he rifled home a shot which DR Congo’s goalkeeper didn’t see until the ball was already nestled in the back of his net.

Over the years Toure has scored some spectacular goals for Barcelona, Man City and the Ivory Coast but this one has to be up there for sheer power alone. Take a look at his stunning finish in the vine below.
