Ivory Coast powered past co-hosts Equatorial Guinea as the Africa Cup of Nations favourites won their quarter-final 3-0 in Malabo.
Elephants captain Didier Drogba was a central figure in the game, seeing a first-half penalty saved by Danilo.
Drogba celebrated exuberantly when scoring shortly after with a low strike before doubling the lead in the second half with a thumping header.
Yaya Toure rounded off the win when powering home a curling free-kick.
The 1992 champions will play either Gabon or Mali in next week’s semi-final in Libreville.
