Ivory Coast v Nigeria match-ups



Key match-ups in Africa Cup of Nations quarterfinal between Ivory Coast and Nigeria Sunday:

Gervinho (CIV) v Joseph Yobo (NGR)

Arsenal striker Gervinho has had an inspired start to the competition, looking sharp, pacey and dangerous whenever he gets the ball. He scored the winner against Togo and the first in the 3-0 rout of Tunisia. Captain Yobo, the experienced defender at his sixth Nations Cup, is set to play after recovering from an ankle injury and Nigeria need him to blunt the Ivorian frontline.

Yaya Toure (CIV) v Victor Moses (NGR)

An intriguing battle in the middle of the park lies ahead between Manchester City giant Toure, the recently annointed African Footballer of the Year, and Chelsea's Moses, making his presence felt at his first Nations Cup. It was Moses who bagged the two late goals against Ethiopia that set up this clash.
