The African nations Cup won by Nigeria after a long gap of almost two decades (after 19 years). This is Nigeria"s third win when they defeated Burkina Faso at Soccer City,South Africa in presence of strong 85000 spectators to lift the cup by a margin of a solitary goal.

Nigeria are now rewarded with a Dollar 1.5 million first prize and a place at the FIFA Confederations Cup in Brazil, where they will face world and European champions Spain, Tahiti and Uruguay.It was a great let off for Burkina Faso in their first ever of the competition's final, they had previously only reached the last four of the tournament in 1998 where they lost to the champions Egypt.

Nigeria kept up the pressure from the very beginning of the match. In the initial stages Aristide Bance wasting a good chance when his low, 25-yard free-kick flashed wide of Enyeama's right post, before Ikechukwu Uche's turn on edge of box was miscued by the onrushing Ideye.

Burkina Faso were struggling from the initial stages to get out of their own half but Nigeria's dominance were fruitful just five minutes before the break, when Mba volleyed past Diakite from the middle of the box.The only goal came when Sunday Mba put Nigeria ahead with a superb volley five minutes before the break after a series of pressure to Burkina Faso, who had to compelled to be defensive in the continuous attack.

A long ball from the own half received by Moses whose shot was blocked and looped up to Mba, who volleyed the ball from the air to give the Super Eagles a deserved lead.

The goal gave the match a much-needed boost, with Burkina Faso increasing their urgency and making a couple of positive runs into the Nigeria box just before the half-time whistle.Nigeria got the chance to doubled their lead two minutes after the break when Moses played in Ideye, who was unable to convert the positive chance.

In the second half Burkina Faso had the chance when Wilfried Sanou came close to levelling for the Stallions but hiseffort were in vain by Vincent Enyeama brilliantly.

Burkina Faso were able to retain the team that started against Ghana in a semifinal settled by a shootout after the red card given to midfielder Jonathan Pitroipa was rescinded when the referee admitted he erred.Nigeria won the African Nations Cup for the first time in 1980, overcome Algeria 3-0 in Lagos with three first-half goals, and the second honour came after 14 years when they fought back from behind to beat Zambia 2-1 in Tunis.
