Moses to start



Nigeria striking pair of Emmanuel Emenike and Victor Moses are expected to feature in the 2013 Afcon final against Burkina Faso on Sunday, supersport.com can report.

The duo have been doubts since Nigeria defeated Mali 4-1 in the semifinals last Wednesday.

But a top official in the Nigerian camp in Johannesburg informed that Moses has been passed fit by the team's doctor, Ibrahim Gyaran.

Chelsea winger, Moses, completed Nigeria's final training session at the National Stadium in Johannesburg on Saturday without showing any sign of his worrisome hamstring.

The team doctor has now passed Moses fit to take part in the final of the Africa Cup of Nations.

On the other hand, Emenike, who did not train with the squad in the past three days but was busy in the gym, could take part in the game but not from the first minute.

It is now likely either Ahmed Musa or Ikechukwu Uche will start in the absence of the Spartak Moscow forward.

"Victor Moses has been passed fit but Emenike did a lot of work in the gym under the supervision of the doctor. He might not start but will play at some point in the game as he has showed very good signs of recovery from the muscle tear he suffered. So it's very possible that Ike Uche or Ahmed Musa will start," said the official.

"But the coach is yet to make his decision known. Later in the day we will have full details on the team news."

Nigeria's Super Eagles will be seeking to win a third African title when they face the Stallions of Burkina Faso on Sunday from 7pm.
