Ivory Coast defender Kolo Toure feels Nigeria are more than capable of winning the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.
The Ivorians had been favourites to lift the trophy, but were eliminated by the Super Eagles in the quarter-finals, and the Manchester City man believes his side’s conquerors have the quality it takes to go all the way.
“Nigeria were stronger than us,” he told Goal.com.
“I am expecting them to win all of their remaining games in the tournament. I mean, they are two steps away from lifting this trophy.
“Stephen Keshi is a good coach and he has changed Nigeria into a respectable team. I think he won’t have a problem beating Mali because he was their coach, he understands their culture.”
Nigeria and Mali play in a semi-final on Wednesday, while Burkina Faso tackle Ghana in the other semi.
