Nigeria beat Ethiopia two nil to advance along with Burkina Faso from her group at the expense of Ethiopia and defending champions Zambia.

Nigeria has played at Afcon 17 times and have advanced to the knock out stage 15 times.

The Eagles will now face much fancied Ivory Coast on Sunday in the 3rd quarter final.

Despite being huge under dogs in the game a coy Keshi has revealed that a special game plan had been formulated for the Elephants though non of the details understandably have been revealed.

A NFF spokesman confided to supersport.com that “ we will compensate our team very well for each and every accomplishment and we will do it very well”.

Meanwhile Ghana got $5000.00 more for doing the same thing.
