Nigeria have won the Africa Cup of Nations with a 1-0 win over Burkina Faso!

After a wicked closing ceremony at Soccer City - the stadium that hosted the 2010 World Cup final - Chelsea's Victor Moses and Jon Obi Mikel started for the Super Eagles - and their side went ahead just before half-time.

Midfielder Sunday Mba was the hero with a absolutely stunning strike, chipping the ball over his marker and volleying home on his left foot in the 40th minute!

Nigeria dominated the game and had plenty of chances to put it to bed - Moses nearly poked home late on - but one goal was enough for the trophy!

SALAH! Top scorer in the Prem – not bad for a 'one-season-wonder'

HUGHES! Back on the scrap heap after another failed job!
