Nigeria progressed to the semi-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations after overcoming favourites Cote d’Ivoire.

Super Eagles striker Emmanuel Emenike opened the scoring just before half-time, smashing a thunderous effort past Boubacar Barry in the Ivorian goal.

Midfielder Cheick Tiote drew the Elephants level shortly after the break, heading home from Didier Drogba’s free-kick.

But Sunday Mba sealed Nigeria’s win, with his shot deflecting off Sol Bamba.
