Nigeria has been dominant so far. John Obi Mikel, in particular has bossed the midfield and is picking long and short passes at will. Burkina Faso yet to get into the match. Burkina Faso has been wasteful with their set-pieces. Florent Rouamba had two opportunities to whip in a corner kick but both were flat and didn't pose much of a threat to Vincent Enyeama in the Nigeria goal!
However, first half of the game ended with a goal from Emmanuel Emenike. The Super Eagles lead 1-0 but the Stallions (Burkina Faso) are by no means out of the match! Join us in 15 minutes for the second period!
