Abidjan - Yaya Toure is again missing from the Ivory Coast squad named by coach Michel Dussuyer on Thursday for next week's friendly with Morocco in Agadir.

Toure does not feature amid suggestions he may be ready to retire from international football to focus on his club Manchester City.

His City colleague Wilfried Bony is also missing due to injury, as is Bournemouth winger Max-Alain Gradel.

However, the reigning African champions hand recalls to Lorient defender Lamine Kone and Constant Djakpa of Eintracht Frankfurt.

In addition, midfield duo Victorien Angban of Belgian side Sint-Truiden and Assane Gnoukouri of Inter Milan feature for the first time.

The squad will get together in Agadir from October 5, with the match to be played on Friday, October 9.
