Nigeria will play Mali in the semi finals of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations
Nigeria progressed to the semi-finals of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations after overcoming favourites Ivory Coast 2-1 in a frenetic game in South Africa on Sunday.
Super Eagles striker Emmanuel Emenike opened the scoring just before half-time, smashing a thunderous effort past Boubacar Barry in the Ivorian goal.
Midfielder Chieck Tiote drew the Elephants level shortly after the break, heading home from Didier Drogba’s free-kick.
Sunday Mba, a home-based player sealed Nigeria’s win, with his shot deflecting off Sol Bamba to shockingly send the little-fancied Super Eagles against the star-laden Ivorians.
Nigeria will face Mali in the semi-finals on Wednesday.
