Eto'o: Toure Is World's Best

Prolific Cameroon striker, Samuel Eto'o, believes Ivory Coast and its talisman Yaya Toure will shine at the World Cup.

Eto'o has hailed Toure for his great season and insisted that people shouldn't underestimate the African teams in Brazil.

"To me, there is no doubt that Yaya Touré is the best player in the world. He has accomplished an extraordinary season,” Eto’o said as quoted by CAF online.

"We are all of the opinion that Côte d’Ivoire is the best team on paper. Looking at the team, it has no equal from an African point of view.

“But at the same time, I say that it is time the Elephants proved in the presence of everyone that they are the best.”

Cameroon and Ivory Coast will be joined by Ghana, Algeria and Nigeria on the world's biggest stage next month, with each looking to become the first African nation to advance past the quarter-finals.

"African teams are likely going to do well in Brazil. And I state that there are reasons to believe in our qualities. In all major European championships, there are always African players that play major roles,” Eto’o added.

"I say it, and restate it that Africa will have its say in Brazil."
