Ivory Coast 4-0 Botswana: Hammering

Ivory Coast score four to win World Cup qualifier

ABIDJAN, June 22 (Reuters) - The Ivory Coast returned to

winning ways in their World Cup qualifiers on Sunday, hammering

Botswana 4-0 to rise to the top of the African qualifying zone

Group Seven standings.

Bundesliga-based striker Boubacar Sanogo opened the scoring

in the 16th minute and Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Didier

Zokora doubled the lead just five minutes later.

Sekou Cisse added the third just after half-time and added a

further goal in the 70th minute before being replaced by Chelsea

forward Salomon Kalou.

The Ivorians, who drew their last two group matches, top the

standings with eight points, three ahead of Botswana and four

above Mozambique who were 3-0 winners over Madagascar in Maputo

earlier on Sunday.

The 2006 World Cup finalists have played their four World

Cup qualifiers this month without some leading players,

including captain Didier Drogba, who pulled out with a knee

injury.
