Ahead of the AFCON final today, Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi, has said that he does not have special tactics to handle Burkina Faso‘s key man, Jonathan Pitroipa.
The playmaker was harshly dismissed in the semi-final game against Ghana, but CAF has rescinded the decision, which means he will face Nigeria tomorrow.
“I applaud CAF‘s decision. The video showed he didn’t deserve the red card. It’s also good for football that he’s back,” Keshi said.
“It doesn’t change my game plan in anyway whether Pitroipa plays or not. He deserves a chance to play in a final. I’m happy for him.”
Keshi also said it was an advantage that Nigeria had played the Stallions before and so have an idea what to expect.
“It’s beneficial that we’ve played them before. But we will approach them with determination to win.”
On the availability of his key striker, Emmanuel Emenike, he said: “He’s not 100% but he’s improved. We’ll know by tomorrow. If he’s not going to be available, we’ll know how to handle it.

With BBC4 and radio2 doing a whole load of nostalgia at the moment about the vinyl album I thought I would come out of the cupboard and admit to the first music I owned, which actually may surprise you but also explains why I still have such an eclectic taste in music.
So starting with the first single:
I remember cycling down the country lanes around the village were we lived singing this at the top of my voice to the fields.
Into the next decade and I went out with my own money and rather than buying another single blew all my money on …..
drum roll ….
are you ready for this?
I played it so much that my mother also got to know the songs and could be heard singing her favorites around the house! But neither of these was the first music I really…

Weather (pun intended) you are snowed in or it’s a beautiful day outside, this is a great playlist to entertain you while you organize your room, cook a nice meal, or simply veg on the coach with a magazine. Some of my favorite weekends are those that I spend taking ordinarily rushed tasks and make them into peaceful fluid ones. Have a balanced weekend my friends.
The football season has ended, leaving me drooling for next season. My Kansas City Chiefs have a lot of work to do in the offseason, and I will be happy to see how Andy Reid fits into the mix. He needs to find a franchise quarterback worth a damn and a few defensive players that can put the heat on the opposing quarterback. OH, and it would be nice to find a way to keep Dwayne Bowe on the roster. Anyway, my sunday nights have officially become vacant in the way of television watching. In the weeks to come I am eager to see how much more domestic drama those crazy Gallaghers from Shameless can stir up, and I’m sure Hank Moody from Californication is sure to cause more trouble himself, so that should be fun. But when it comes to single serving entertainment, the Oscars are in a few…

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Bruce Springsteen was honored as MusiCares person of the year on Friday evening in downtown Los Angeles.
CBS2’s Suzanne Marques reports that the gala at the West Hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center drew some of music’s biggest stars to pay tribute to Springsteen.
The night kicked off with a performance of “Atlantic City” by Alabama Shakes.
“He’s just a great guy. I think he’s one of those artists that come along very very seldomly. It is an artist that sorta speaks to everybody and gives everybody a voice. He in a lot of ways becomes a social consciousness,” said Tim McGraw.
The Associated Press reported that a signed Fender electric guitar was auctioned of by Springsteen for $250,000 with proceeds going toward the music charity. The 63-year-old rock ‘n’ roll legend reportedly included guitar…
