Less fancied Super Eagles of Nigeria have sent the Ivorians packing of the 2013 African Cup of Nations.
The Ivorians are favoured to win the tournament and they were probably looking for a ride over the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
Nigeria’s coach Keshi had a plan and it worked.
His side played as calmly as possible and they played very much better than the Ivorians.
Emenike and Mba scored on both sides of the halves while Tiote headed in 1-1 just after the interval.
The Toures, Didier Drogba, Zamora and the boastful Eboue can now end their international career without any glory. This generation of players has been wrongfully tagged the golden generation even when they have not won any major trophy.
