Kolo Toure: Liverpool can finish in the top four
Cote d'Ivoire defender Kolo Toure has claimed that Nigeria is more than capable of winning the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Ivorians had been favorites to lift the trophy, but were eliminated by the Super Eagles in the quarterfinal, and the Manchester City man believes his side's conqueror has all the quality it takes to go all the way.

"Nigeria were stronger than us," he told"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.

He added, "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."
