Bony Helps Ivory Coast To Comeback Win vs Japan



Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony carried on from where he left off from last season, scoring to help Ivory Coast comeback to beat Japan 2-1.

After loanee Jonathan de Guzman started for Holland on Friday as they thrashed Spain 5-1, Bony also earned himself a starting place - which was hardly a surprise given the season he's just had for the Swans.

The 25 year-old needed just 64 minutes to score his first World Cup goal, cancelling out Honda's early opener for Japan.

Serge Aurier sent in an inviting, out-swinging cross with pace from the right wing and Bony met it well to head home from close range, sending the ball into the far corner.
