Didier on target!

Didier Zokora has signed off his long season in style - with a World Cup qualifying goal for Ivory Coast on Sunday.

The midfielder - yet to score for us - bagged the second goal as Ivory Coast beat Botswana 4-0 in Abidjan to take control of African qualifying Group Seven. They are unbeaten and now three points clear of Botswana with two group matches remaining.

Twelve group winners and eight best runners-up will advance to the next round of African qualifying with the 20 teams divided into five groups of four.

Meanwhile, Young-Pyo Lee's South Korea drew 0-0 against North Korea in Seoul as both countries booked their place in the next round of Asian qualifying. The next stage is two groups of five teams.
