Key match-ups for the Africa Cup of Nations final between Burkina Faso and Nigeria at Soccer City Sunday:

Daouda Diakite (BUR) v Emmanuel Emenike (NGR)

Diakite has produced some telling saves which have seen him retain his position between the Burkinabe posts at the expense of regular number one Abdoulaye Soulmana. He'll have to be at his best with Nigeria's attack led by four-goal Emmanuel Emenike.

Aristide Bance (BUR) v Efe Ambrose (NGR)

Celtic's Ambrose forms part of Nigeria's backline, which will be tested by spaghetti mop-haired Bance, who has emerged as one of the Burkinabe's most potent strikers.
