Nigeria appeared to have done enough to secure a laboured win thanks to an opportunist 23rd-minute goal from Emmanuel Emineke who reacted faster than the defenders to a clever flick from Brown Ideye.
They failed to add to their lead though and had Efe Ambrose sent off
in the 73rd minute after tangling with Burkina Faso’s Jonathan Pitroipa.
With the final seconds ticking down and the referee looking at his
watch for the final time Burkina Faso carved open Nigeria’s defence
allowing Alain Traore to equalise.
