Man City captain Toure hails Adebayor scoring comeback

Manchester City captain Kolo Toure was delighted for Emmanuel Adebayor after his comeback goal in their win over Portsmouth.

The Togo international lost friends and colleagues when the team bus was ambushed in a terrorist attack.

Ivory Coast captain Toure told City's website: "I saw him out in Cabinda and shared his difficulties. It was really tough for him and his family, but he's a tough guy. He has showed his strength."

Toure will back Togo's appeal against their two-tournament suspension for pulling out after the terrorist attack. He said: "It's very unfair. When you've lost friends, how can you play?"
