The former Arsenal defender believes Crystal Palace star, Wilfried Zaha can be the next Drogba for the national side.

Zaha switched alliances from England to the Ivory Coast, and has already competed in the Africa Cup of Nations,

“He is fantastic, a great player and I think he made a great decision. Nowadays to play for England is tough. There is so much great talent and the competition is really really tight," Toure told True Africa,

“For Wilfried Zaha to play for Ivory Coast! He will be the next Didier Drogba! What he is doing now is great and he is playing amazing with other good players around him.

“It is a great choice [by Zaha]. We are really happy. I know people in England are not so happy, but for Ivory Coast it is one of the best things that can happen to our country’s team.”
