Nigeria’s Flying Eagles were held to a 1-1 draw by Burkina Faso in their 12th All Africa Games men’s football first Group A encounter at the Stade Hassan Moulay, Rabat on Friday, reports Completesports.com.
Ahmad Ghali opened scoring for Nigeria in the 58th minute from a Abubakar Ibrahim corner kick.
The Burkinabe equalised in the 72nd minute despite playing second fiddle for most of the game.
The Flying Eagles had other chances to win the game but were let down by their poor finishing in front of goal.
Paul Aigbogun’s boys will take on the Amajita of South Africa in their next game on Tuesday at the same venue.
