Tottenham midfielder Didier Zokora says last night's 4-4 draw with Chelsea will be an inspiration for youngsters back home in Ivory Coast.

Zokora, along with Chelsea pair Salomon Kalou and Didier Drogba, were Ivory Coast's representatives on the night and the Spurs man said: "It makes me happy when I play against my friends from my country because it's good for African football and it gives hope to the youngsters there."
