Feb 1st, 2013 – Didier Drogba: Ivory Coast Can’t Afford To Lose To Nigeria’s Super Eagles

Ahead of their quarter-final encounter against Nigeria, some Ivorian players are already talking tough and have insisted they won’t take the tie likely, as they pursue their first ever Cup of Nations trophy.

Former Chelsea powerhouse, Didier Drogba told reporters that “Nigeria is a tough side and we have to approach the game with a different strategy. We can’t afford to lose to Nigeria on Sunday.”

Emmanuel Eboue, who has had some fake quotes attributed to him this week, said that Nigeria was the favourites to win.

“Your country (referring to the Super Eagles) are more favoured in this game. We will try our best to win. We just have to win on Sunday because our target here is to win the trophy for our fans and people of Ivory Coast,” the Fenerbahce right-back said.

Speaking after their last group game against Algeria, Wilfred Bony said: “Now that we are through with the game against Algeria, we are ready for Nigeria.”
