Johannesburg - The Super Eagles are the champions of Africa.
Nigeria beat Burkina Faso on Sunday night during the African Cup of Nations final in a packed Soccer City stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Forward Sunday Mba scored the only goal in the first half to help his team seal the win and end an impressive run by Burkina Faso, who came into the final as the clear underdogs.
Coach Stephen Keshi was the captain who lifted the trophy in 1994, the last time Nigeria was crowned champions of Africa.
