Live and let live Kimbo. It is part of their football culture. Doesn't seem to affect the players.

Live and let them ruin the competition like they did the world cup.

And chinston is right, there's alot of empty seats out there, people are clearly put off by these Vuvuselas. Imagine a world cup in Scotchland where everyone brings a fucking bagpipe.

You're wrong Kimbo. It is the local people that bring them and its accepted and appreciated here. There are reasons for empty seats. Nelspruit and Rustenburg stadius are in the middle of nowhere and the traffic control is simply ludicrous to put it mildly!

That's cool, if the locals like it then that's ok, it is the African cup afterall, but lets never have another WORLD CUP in Africa. <Ale>

They get with the spirit of it here, but it is not the tradition or culture in many other countries. Many favour percussion. Expect some noise in Morocco two years from now. The others respect SA tradition.

German fan support is basically the same though. Always the same sound.

Anyway, it's weird that bee sounds are okay, but monkey sounds are frowned upon in football. Double standard says I.

So what do people think of Nigeria's win and more importantly Burkina Faso's? No doubt that expert on African football that calls himself Rosicky sees it as proof of African football getting worse rather than the 'lesser' teams getting better. Burkina have been very good and have got there on merit in as hard a way as could have been dumped on them. Yesterday they conquered Ghana's 12 man team (not Ghana's fault). The referee was a complete disgrace.

The whores of Africa are honourable women - at least the Zambian ones. Not sure about the Nigerian ones though.

It's probably an e-mail scam...knowing them Nigerians.

Anyway, shame to see our Afeyrika-Korps failed to deliver the goods once again. Thank god, the homefront is at least a lot more safe thanks to the Fey-Jugend.

It's been a real positive for Nigerians this tournament - definitely a step in the right direction for sure. I think the move to integrate more home-grown based players has definitely worked a treat. Like many things, it's about striking the right balance and I think Keshi has definitely done that. The three Chelsea players have been hugely impressive. I really like the look of Omeruo. Wonder if S4P knows much about him?

Emenike is awesome but i'm sure a lot of people knew that before the tournament. Expect him to get an EPL move soon.

I would've said the final would've been 50:50 but with Pitroipa and Alain Traore both missing, the odds are hugely stacked in our favour. I'm not getting over-confident though, still a tad nervous about this final.

I'd say Pitroipa and Moses have been the best players in this tournament. I wonder why it didn't work our for the former at Hamburg though.

We already have a big surprise champion last year so I hope Nigeria gets it because I want them to grow a little and this would help them big time. To be honest given Nigeria's troubles since...forever it is a bit of a surprise that they have finally gotten things together but I'm happy they have because at the moment we only have Ghana and Ivory Coast since Cameroon+Egypt seems dead now so good to see.

I do hope we get it too. I am being bias of course, but with the country's infrastructure, money, population etc, it's about time they got their act together. First final in 13 years FFS! We should be no.1 in Africa bar none.

I was very impressed with the way we swamped Ivory Coast. I was expecting a more progressive performance, but it was pretty much domination from start to finish. Let's hope this is the start of something good because there are a lot of young players in the team - by Nigerian standards anyway Wink

You haven't heard. Referee Slim Jdidi has apologised, admitting that he got it wrong. The way has been cleared for CAF to to rescind the red card allowing Pitroipa to play. Cannot understand why it is necessary for a referee to admit he got it wrong when it is patently obvious that he did.

It is almost certain that Jdidi will be investigated after the tournament. The South African referee Daniel Bennett was effectively sent home earlier (told he won't be officiating again) after Togo v Tunisia farce. The only other one being looked at is the Egyptian that gave Zambia a penalty against Nigeria. Enyeama said that was a soft decision. One more should be looked at. How on earth was Daouda not sent off after handling in 6th minute or so against Mali. Bet Sian wouldn't have got those wrong. Wink

Huh? Bit early to write off everyone else. Burkina have got to this final playing with the same hunger and intensity that Zambia did last year. Egypt are far from finished. The infrastructures are still there and their problem is the suspension of the league plus the continued political problems, but others are coping. Egypt's biggest problem was the ludicrous decision to appoint Bob Bradley.

Shocked The game takes on a huge different outlook now. Pitroipa is awesome. Like Gervinho with end product. I presume he'll be playing off Bance like he did in the semi's? Bance was hugely impressive as well. Reminded me of Adebayor in that season he got 30 goals for us. Should be interesting, i'd still make us slight favourites though.

Well regardless of how they did it the most important thing is that for once Nigeria looked more like a team. I only catched parts of the game but it was still obvious.

I have never said Burkina Faso doesn't deserve to be there. What I'm saying is that I hope Nigeria wins for reasons that have to do with Nigeria and the need of good teams in Africa. Burkina Faso will probably not be a top team for years to come.

We will see about Egypt in the coming years but they have never been able to even qualify so their credentials are a bit overhyped.

They lost a one-off play-off by a narrow margin to miss out on the World Cup. They avenged that loss 4-0 in the African Cup of Nations of 2010 on their way to winning it. Their football infrastructures were damaged in 2011 and they had other things to worry about in 2011 and 12. Their revolution was being betrayed. For this years tournament their league was suspended following the Port Said disturbances. I'll bet most countries would struggle to qualify when coping with that - a national team that has no match practice or match fitness. Judge them when their structures and league return to normal.

It used to be known as Upper Volta. I think they have been a revelation and under-estimated by all opponents. There's talk that the refereeing in Ghana match was so bad that it amounts to match-fixing. There were some very poor decisions and that ref is going to face investigation. Interresting that the ref that missed the hand-ball against Daouda - should have been red got away with it. It's just two that have been effectively sent home - Jdidi and Bennett.
