Nigeria win AFCON

Nigeria beat Burkina Faso in the African Cup of Nations 1 - 0, after a magnificently skillful goal by Sunday Mba. See the winning goal here.

One goal was scored in the African Cup of Nations, but only one goal was needed to seal victory and the cup for Nigeria. Oh boy what a goal it was, however.

Just before half time, on the 40th minute Sunday Mba put the Super Eagles ahead with a wonderfully skillful goal. The Warri Wolves player latched onto a loose ball just outside Burkina Faso's box, clipped it over a defended then volleyed the ball into the far side of the net.

A finger tip save from goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama denied Burkina Faso an equaliser from a Wilfried Sanou strike. Whilst Ahmed Musa and Victor Moses missed out on sealing the cup final when two good chances went begging.

However, the Super Eagles were dominant throughout- their deep pool of attacking proving too skillful for Burkina Faso, who failed to make any impact in their maiden cup final.

It is also the first time in 21 years that a black African coach has won the cup- Ivory Coast's Yeo Martel was the last to do so in 1992.

There was even more for Nigeria to celebrate about, as Chelsea's Victor Moses was name Player of the Tournament.
