Bailly moves further forward and goes on a charging run before he is tackled.
84'
We are approaching the final stages and a goal is looking unlikely on the balance of play, Togo understandably look content with a point.
82'
Togo make their intentions clear by bringing off striker Laba and replacing him with defender Akakpo.

CLOSE! The game is livening up. Adebayor feeds the ball to Dossevi on the right flank, his mis-hit cross floats onto the roof of the net and nearly catches the keeper out.
79'
Bony wins a free-kick on the edge of the box after being tripped by Akoriko. Aurier will take it but its straight into the top of the wall.
77'
WHAT A MISS! An unmarked Laba heads the ball over the bar from 12 yards out from Ihlas's cross from the left after good link-up play from Adebayor.
75'
The Ivorians face DR Congo next on Friday while Togo clash with Morocco.
74'
Kodjia is now playing on the right, he fires in a cross which the keeper gathers. The Elephants have tried to mix things up but nothing has worked so far.
72'
The game has been played in a very friendly manner between both sides, it has lacked intensity for the most part.
70'
Zaha is surprisingly coming off for Stoke City forward Bony, the Palace man has been more effective than most of his team-mates.

Togo will be pleased with holding the reigning champions to a draw but Elephants boss Michel Dussuyer must be thinking about making a substitution.
63'
Dossevi's low cross is blocked by Traore for a corner from the right. It is whipped into the near post but is headed clear.

60'
Kessie wins a free-kick right on the edge of the area after being pushed from behind with his back to goal, looked a soft decision. Kalou takes the free-kick but blazes his effort over.
