Keshi Says No Secret Between The TeamsAfter three weeks of football, today sees the culmination of Africa's premier sports competition, the African Cup of Nations.

Speaking ahead of the final game between nailed - on favorites Nigeria and Burkina Faso, Super Eagles handler Stephen Keshi says there is no secret between the two sides having met in the group stage of the tournament.

''We have played Burkina Faso at some stage during this tournament. We have had three games after that game, we have tried to correct our mistakes.

Burkina Faso knows us just as much as we know about them. There are no surprises between these two teams. I’m sure they have seen us play – we know them, they know us. That is good for both teams,'' Keshi told reporters.

Both teams battled to a 1- 1 draw in their Group C opener. Emmanuel Emenike, whose availability for the tie at the National Stadium in Johannesburg remains a mystery, had given Nigeria a first half lead. But deep into stoppage time, Alain Traore popped up to score Burkina Faso's equalizer.
