Nigeria Vs Burkina Faso - AFCON 2013 Final (1 - 0) - On 10th February 2013 by mukina2: 10:13pm On Feb 06, 2013
The Super eagles of nigeria defeated Mali 4 -1 in a one sided semi final match, with goals from Musa, Echiejile, Ideye and sissoko scored an own goal.

After atrocious referring decisions, the Burkinabees had a legit goal disallowed and a player sent off, they came back from 1 down , leveled the score through bance, went to shoot outs and won.

Nearly two decades have passed since the Super Eagles last soared above all other continental challengers, when their 1994 vintage – inspired by talented youngsters like Jay-Jay Okocha and Sunday Oliseh, complemented by the goals and experience of Rashidi Yekini – prevented a fairytale victory for a Zambia team badly scarred by the Gabon air tragedy just months earlier. That disaster was used by Zambia as inspiration for last year's triumph in Libreville and the same period provides motivation for Nigeria this time, too, following the untimely death of Yekini - the country's all-time leading scorer and star of the 1994 tournament - last year at the age of 48.


Key battle: Victor Moses v Jonathan Pitroipa. Both wingers have played an integral role for their respective teams at this tournament, and have often produced the spark of creativity to inspire their team-mates. Chelsea attacker Moses, who only made his debut for Nigeria last year, didn't start the first game of the finals but has proved indispensable since - no more so than when winning and scoring two late penalties to secure progress in the final group game. His opposing No. 11's presence in the final was only confirmed on Friday when a ban for a harsh red card in the semi-final victory over Ghana was overturned. Pitroipa's availability is a major boost to Burkina Faso, with the Stade Rennes man having created Alain Traore's late group-stage leveller against Nigeria and proving he has more than just pace and nimble feet when heading home the winner in the quarter-final against Togo.

Trivia: Guinea are the only country to have played at more African Nations Cups than Burkina Faso without winning the trophy. This is Burkina Faso's ninth tournament, while Guinea have yet to triumph in ten appearances. However, the Stallions can take heart from the fact that Ivory Coast took ten attempts to win their first crown, while Tunisia claimed glory on their 11th attempt and last year's champions Zambia finally broke their duck at the 15th time of asking.

Stats: Although they missed the 2012 tournament, Nigeria have played the second-highest number of African Nations Cup matches (80) in the competition's history, with only record seven-time winners Egypt having featured in more games (90). Egypt are also the only nation to have scored more goals (154) than the Super Eagles (112).

Prediction: Burkina Faso will be looking to follow in Zambia's footsteps but Nigeria are ready to put their African Nations Cup underachievement behind them and claim that long-awaited third continental title.

I'm sure there's a lot of match fixing in this competiton, the refree was trying to fix the match for Ghana, but God disfix it @ d end of the day. But Ghana really disappoint me. I jst hope Burkina faso would appeal that silly red card, so their top star too would play that final, cos I no wan hear story after we beat them.
