The Toure family have had to deal with the tragic loss of their brother, 28-year-old Ibrahim, who passed away on Thursday in Manchester. 

While their national side might be involved in the World Cup, Yaya and Kolo Toure have other things on their mind after they learned of the passing of their brother Ibrahim, who lost his battle with cancer on Thursday. 

In a statement, the Ivorian Football Federation said that the "national team, and the entire delegation here in Brazil, show their support to the Toure brothers and their whole family. The president of Football Ivory Coast Federation and the Executive Comitee ask Ivorians for their prayers".

Ibrahim, who played for Lebanese side Al-Safa FC, had been battling the disease and was being treated in Manchester, and while both his brothers are involved in the team in Brazil, they may decided to take no further part, given the circumstances.
