AFCON's football party moves to Nelspruit


The drama and fun of the Africa Cup of Nations moved on Monday to the South African city of Nelspruit, located near the borders with Swaziland and Mozambique.

The city, also known for its proximity to one of Africa's main animal reserves, the Kruger National Park, saw the defending champions, Zambia's Copper Bullets, face Ethiopia's Walya Antelopes and Nigeria's Super Eagles fight against Burkina Faso's Stallions.

The BBC's Peter Okowche sent this report to our Focus on Africa programme.
