Nigeria’s Flying Eagles settled for Silver medal after they fell to a 2-0 defeat to Burkina Faso in the final of the men’s football event at the 12th All Africa Games in Rabat, Morocco, reports Completesports.com.

The Paul Aigbogun’s charges conceded twice in the first half of the encounter played at the Stade Moulay Hassan.

Despite spirited efforts to find their way back into the game, the Flying Eagles were unable to breach the Burkina Faso defence in the second half.

Both teams battled to a 1-1 draw in the group stage, but Burkina Faso proved their superiority over the Flying Eagles this time around.

Nigeria last won an All Africa Gold medal in the 1973 edition.
