Slideshow: Return of the Super Eagles
1. Closing ceremony sets the scene
A glitzy closing ceremony was provided by the South African organisers before the final kicked-off in front of a packed National Stadium in Johannesburg. After a fireworks display, the outline of Africa was greeted with roars from the crowd, as the ceremony's main message was displayed: "Celebrate Africa". The tournament, which has been considered as a success by Isaa Hayatou, attracted over 800 000 fans in all five venues.
