Toure was named to the Ivory Coast 23-man World Cup squad Monday despite being diagnosed with malaria last week, the Associated Press reports.

Toure is expected to be healthy enough to participate, but coming down with the illness so close to the World Cup certainly isn't going to help against Japan, Colombia and Greece in the group stage.

Toure scored a terrible own goal in Liverpool's 3-2 victory over Fulham on Wednesday.

Toure was bailed out by his attacking teammates, Wednesday, after starting the day with a comical own goal. Toure has had a bad run of performances lately, and will likely find his way to the bench as soon as Daniel Agger (calf) and Mamadou Sakho (knee) return from injuries over the next few weeks.

Toure assisted on Daniel Sturridge's 35th minute goal in Liverpool's 4-0 victory over Everton on Tuesday.

Toure has been in and out of a tumultuous back line for Liverpool this season. The Ivorian doesn't get onto the score sheet often, and The Reds don't keep enough clean sheets to warrant much fantasy consideration in anything other than the deepest of formats.

Toure (hip) was available off the bench for last Saturday's match against Norwich but he did not make an appearance.

Toure picked up a slight hip injury during last Wednesday's match against Norwich, which may have caused his inactive status over the weekend.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rogers is hopeful that the injury is a minor one and that the defender will be available to play on Wednesday.

Toure recorded his first assist for Liverpool in the Reds' 4-1 win over West Bromwich on Saturday.

Toure has looked good in defense this season for Liverpool despite their shaky back line. Toure and the rest of the Reds defense will have a tough time next week versus a high-powered Arsenal attack.

Toure (groin) could return to the pitch for Monday's match against Swansea, reports.

There is plenty of competition for playing time at Liverpool, so even if Toure is fit, he may start the match on the bench. Either way, it'll be good to have him back after missing a few weeks with his groin injury.

Toure suffered a groin injury during Tuesday's 4-2 Capital One Cup win over Notts County, the Daily Mail reports. Manager Brendan Rodgers said that Toure "overstretched his groin, so we need to assess that, which doesn't look so good to be honest."

Toure was stretchered off and Liverpool were forced to play with only 10 men, as they had already used their three substitutions. His availability for Sunday's match against Manchester United looks doubtful.
