Ivory Coast: Yaya Toure and Kolo Toure
Toure Brothers are to decide when they are to return to Manchester

Yaya and Kolo Toure have chosen to remain with Ivory Coast at the World Cup in Brazil after the death of their younger brother.

Ibrahim Toure, 28, who had been battling cancer, died on Thursday.

"The Toure brothers have decided to stay with the team. They are not leaving Brazil," an Ivorian Football Federation representative said.

Ivory Coast play Greece in their final Group C game on Tuesday knowing a win will earn them a place in the last 16.

Manchester City midfielder Yaya, 31, played in the victory over Japan and the defeat against Colombia, while Liverpool defender Kolo, 33, has been an unused substitute for The Elephants.
