Nigeria seek AFCON title
Johannesburg - Nigeria will be trying to lift the Africa Cup of Nations trophy again after nearly two decades when it faces a Burkina Faso team hoping for an upset and its first major title on Sunday.
Nigeria is back in the final after 13 years and has a chance to win the title for the first time since it dominated African football in the 1990s.
Burkina Faso is in its first final and enters the decisive match looking to shock African football just like Zambia did when it beat Ivory Coast last year.
Burkina Faso will have leading striker Jonathan Pitroipa available after his red card in the semi-finals was rescinded, but it's unclear if injured Nigerian attacking duo Victor Moses and Emmanuel Emenike will be fit for the match at Soccer City.
