Top 10 moments of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations
Last gasp strike saves Burkina Faso
It was a done deal for Nigeria in their first group fixture against Burkina Faso. Emmanuel Emenike had put them in the lead in the 23rd minute and that was the result after 90 minutes of regulation time. The scripts of football journalists were ready to hit websites with just seconds to guzzle stoppage time. Then out of the blue, it happened – the Stallions had snatched the Super Eagles’ victory by a last-minute equaliser, which left both teams with a point. The 1998 hosts had Alain Traore to thank as that goal aided them in their journey to the final.
