Stand Up For The Champions jor! Super Eagles Beat Cote D'ivoire 2-1

These guys really stunned me this evening. I wasn't expecting it but they put in their best just for me! Hahahaha

The Eagles were able to jink past the Ivorians and ended the match in a 2-1 victory. The opening goal was scored by Emmanuel Emenike, who converted a free kick into a goal.

The first half ended 1-0 in favour of the Super Eagles. Didier Drogba's free kick found Tiote's head, who buried his header into the net to grab an equalizer for the opponents.
A late strike from locally-based midfielder Mba, in the last 12 minutes of the game gave Nigeria they victory they needed much.

There was a brief threat in injury time as a cluster of set pieces saw the Ivorians throw everything forward, but in truth Nigeria were comfortable as they closed out a famous win and a place in the last four.
