Toure's Ivory Coast side missed out on a spot in the last 16 in Brazil after suffering a last-gasp defeat by Greece in their final group game.

Ivory Coast appeared to be heading into the knockout stages until Greece were awarded a penalty in stoppage-time after Georgios Samaras was fouled by Giovanni Sio.

Samaras scored from the spot to send Greece through, but Toure was unhappy with the decision which cost his team.

The Manchester City midfielder believes that Ivory Coast should have been awarded penalties earlier in the World Cup, but that people are not concerned by what happens to African teams.

"I desperately wanted the referee to spot the simulation of Samaras," Toure told France Football.

"Once again, the refereeing was not on our side. We had at least two penalties turned down during our game against Japan. This time, one is invented against Greece.

"Of course, it does not upset anyone because it only concerns an African team. Who really cares about the injustices of an African team?

"This mistake deprives us of something huge. It is a scandal that unfortunately does not seem to bother many people."
