Ikechukwu Uche Replaces Emenike In Starting 11Ahead of the African Cup of Nations final, Spartak Moscow forward Emmanuel Emenike has failed a late fitness test meaning he has been left out of Nigeria's starting eleven for tonight's clash with Burkina Faso.

Otherwise, there are no surprises in the list released by coach Stephen Keshi. In goal is stand-in skipper Vincent Enyeama. The defense comprises Godfrey Oboabona, Kenneth Omeruo, Elderson Echiejile and Efe Ambrose.

Keshi is sticking with a flexible 4-3-3 formation which can easily be converted to a 4- 5 - 1 if the team is not in possession. Mikel Obi (Chelsea), Eddy Onazi( Lazio) and local boy Sunday Mba of Warri Wolves will star in midfield.

Leading the Eagles charge for goals are Ikechukwu Uche, who replaces the injured Emenike, Victor Moses and Brown Ideye.
