Toure played the full 90 minutes in Ivory Coast's 2-1 victory over Japan on Saturday. His status for the match was in doubt due to a hamstring issue, but it did not keep him from missing any time. Toure finished the match with two shots, but neither were on target.

The hamstring injury suffered at the end of the Premier League season does not look like it will force Toure to miss any World Cup action. He should be ready to play the full 90 minutes again when Ivory Coast take on Colombia on Thursday in a crucial Group C match.

Toure (hamstring) is not back to full fitness ahead of Saturday's match against Japan, reports Sky Sports. Toure injured his hamstring at the end of the Premier League season and underwent surgery just last month. His status will be determined by a fit test before the match.

Even if Toure is able to play, his playing time may be limited in the opening match in order to ensure he is healthy for the remainder of the tournament.

Toure finished the 2013-14 Premier League season with 20 goals, leading all midfielders in England, while also adding nine assists, which tied him for fifth in the league.

It was a remarkable season for Toure, which capped it off by hoisting the league trophy on the last day of the season. He is in the conversation for the best midfielder in the world, and he'll be a mainstay in the City starting XI for years to come.

Toure had a goal and an assist in Manchester City's 4-0 win over Aston Villa on Wednesday.

Toure joins Liverpool attackers Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge as the only players in the Premier League with 20 goals this season. It's been an incredible year for Toure, who had only seven goals last season. He'll look to close out the season a high note, with Manchester City winning the Premier League title if they can defeat West Ham on Sunday.

Toure, who was substituted off from Saturday's match against Everton, has been declared fit for Manchester City's final two Premier League matches, Sky Sports reports. "It was very important I came off (against Everton). It has been difficult for me in a short space of time to recover from the injury I picked up at Liverpool and prepare physically," Toure said. "If you are not fully prepared it is very tough, because you have to be at 100 per cent for these games and coming back is always difficult, especially at the end of the season, but I feel good."

This is great news for City and for fantasy owners, who will both try to ride Toure to a title this weekend.

Toure returned from a groin injury to score a goal and assist on another in Manchester City's 2-0 win over Crystal Palace on Sunday.

With David Silva out due to an ankle injury, Toure stepped up for City, sending in a beautiful pass to Edin Dzeko for the first score of the match in the fourth minute, and then finding the back of the net himself two minutes before halftime. Toure now has 19 Premier League goals this season, which trails only Luis Suarez (30) and Daniel Sturridge (20).
