Super Eagles Defeat Ivory Coast 2-1 in African Cup of Nations Quarterfinals

 The Super Eagles of Nigeria have defeated the Elephants of Ivory Coast 2-1 in the third quarterfinal of the African Cup of Nations. A splendid strike in the first half by Emmanuel Emenike put the Super Eagles in the lead, this was cancelled by a header from Tiote for Ivory Coast early in the second half but a great run and deflected shot from Sunday Mba proved decisive as the tournament favourites, Ivory Coast  with stars like Didier Drogba and Yaya Toure could not respond with an equalizer.

Nigeria will play Mali in the semifinals.
