And what a goal by Emenike! :D

1-0 to Nigeria at 42' with Emenike making a big hole in Barry's hands from a direct freekick.

CIV 0-1 Nigeria at HT

A very deserved lead for the Super Eagles who were always more dangerous in this first half.

50' 1-1 Cheik Tioté heading in after a freekick by Drogba on the left. Terrible marking by the Nigerian defense there. Game on!

Ivory Coast 1-2 Nigeria - FT

A deserved win for Nigeria who looked always more dangerous and more organised than CIV.

After yet another failure the Elephants will have to be rebaptised as Les Chokers. :D

deserved win for Nigeria, once again CIV can't do it in a big game, maybe they were unfortunate to play a decent team like Nigeria already in the quarters but it doesn't help their image of being chokers

Cote d'Ivoire should ditch the Orange, they're becoming Holland. Great players, high expectations and yet they choke.

I'll have to say that from what I've seen so far I think Nigeria are the number one favourites to win this. I think they are looking much better than Ghana.
