City 100: Kolo returns and World Cup record

The latest instalment in our 100-themed summer feature...

71Kolo returns!

Crowd favourite Kolo Toure was given special permission from his club Celtic to appear at Yaya Toure’s emotional farewell game in May.

The Ivorian defender was a surprise guest at the post-match celebrations for his brother who signed off with a 3-1 win over Brighton.

Of course, his appearance sparked off the ‘Yaya/Kolo’ song – at least for one last time…

And as Yaya later commented… “Kolo in a suit? It must be a special occasion…”

72World Cup record equalled

City equalled the record for most players at a World Cup when 16 members of our title-winning team represented their nations in Russia.

Champions League winners Real Madrid matched that figure with La Liga rivals FC Barcelona two behind on 14.

 

KUN: Aguero takes charge

 

The Blues would have set an undisputed record had Leroy Sane not surprisingly been omitted.

The 22-year-old winger netted 10 times in 32 Premier League appearances for the Blues, bagging 15 assists along the way and given Germany’s early exit, his pace and trickery could have made a big difference to the former defending World champions.

City players who played at the World Cup: Ederson, Fernandinho, Danilo, Gabriel Jesus (Brazil); John Stones, Kyle Walker, Fabian Delph, Raheem Sterling (England); Nicolas Otamendi, Sergio Aguero (Argentina); Vincent Kompany, Kevin De Bruyne (Belgium); Benjamin Mendy (France); Ilkay Gundogan (Germany); Bernardo Silva (Portugal); David Silva (Spain).
