Ivory Coast defender Emmanuel Eboue has confidently teased the Super Eagles of Nigeria saying that the Nigerian team shouldn’t celebrate their advancement to the quarterfinals as their journey in 2013 African Nations Cup will be short lived.

Eboue went on micro-blogging site Twitter to tell his 145k followers that the Elephants of Ivory Coast would eat their Nigerian counterparts like ‘fufu’. He then jokingly apologized, further stressing that they will actually be eaten like ‘Super fried chicken‘ when they meet the Ivorian team in the next round of the tournament.

‘Congrat to Nigeria . Don’t celebrate too much cuz we are coming for you. We are going to eat you like fufu. Sorry guys, point of correction. We are going to eat Nigeria like #SuperFriedChickens‘, @TheRealEboue tweeted.

Nigeria advanced to the quarterfinals of the tournament last night by beating Ethiopia two goals to nil. Ivory Coast have won their last two games with a game in hand to be played today against Algeria
