  • It's all over and Burkina Faso have secured an unlikely point at the death in their Group C match with Nigeria. It appeared as if Emenike's goal would be enough for the Super Eagles who were down to ten men with Ambrose's sending off, but substitute Traore popped up to give his side a fantastic 1-1 draw. Thank you for joining us and good night.

  • GOAL BURKINA FASO Traore. Pitroipa picked up a ball on the right side of goal but just inside the box, and with his feet about to go from under him he managed to lay the ball back. His pass appeared to have been misplaced but Obobona allowed the ball to roll under his foot to the waiting Traore who made no mistake as he slotted home.

  • There will be four minutes of added time...

  • Dagano tries to set up Sanou with a back flick inside the box but he can't find his teammate under pressure from Echiejile.

  • Koffi works some space for himself in a central position but his strike did not match his approach play.

  • Obobona does well to clear a Sanou cross. Burkina Faso have upped the tempo here as they search for an equaliser.

  • Mikel plays a neat one-two with Uche before blasting his shot wide of the target.

  • Soulama does well to nick the ball of the toe of Musa with the wide player again baring down on goal.

  • Musa puts Kone under pressure and steals the ball off the defender before racing through on goal but loses his feet and Burkina Faso can clear.

  • Abdoulrazak Traore is on for Florent Rouamba.

  • Uche does well to take a sweeping down on his chest to beat his man out wide on the left but after taking the ball goalward, he skies his effort over the bar.

  • Ideye Brown makes way for Kenneth Omeruo.

  • That's a second yellow for Efe Ambrose for a nothing tackle on Jonathan Pitroipa. He will miss his side's next game against Zambia.

  • Nosa Igiebor is booked for a challenge on Florent Rouamba.

  • Ogenyi Onazi replaces Fengor Ogude.

  • Kone tries his luck from distance but Enyeama makes an easy save, this after a good run down the left flank from Traore who cut outside his man before seeing his cut-back cut out.

  • Terrible miss from Uche after a solid first touch had allowed him to bring the ball on to his left foot - from a left hand cross from Musa - but his shot is woefully wide of the target.

  • Alain Traore replaces Aristide Bance.

  • Mohamed Koffi does well to get to the ball ahead of Musa with the player racing through on goal.

  • Super one-handed save Enyeama low to his right to push a Dagano shot wide of the post.
