City's Yaya and Kolo Toure are both safe after crowd trouble halted play as Senegal hosted the Ivory Coast in Dakar.

Disturbances broke out as Didier Drogba put the Elephants 2-0 up, after what was deemed a controversial penalty decision in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

Fires were started in the stands at Stade Leopold Senghor and missiles were launched on to the pitch before the players were escorted to safety.

Yaya and Kolo were both involved in the second leg clash and reports suggest the brothers are unharmed.


It is likely the Ivorians will be awarded the tie but so far there has been no official confirmation from the governing Confederation of African Football.
