Sporting Lisbon seal Portuguese Cup

AFP, Lisbon

Sporting Lisbon won their 17th Portuguese Cup on Saturday after triumphing 5-4 on penalties in a thrilling final taken to spot-kicks thanks to a 121st-minute Porto equaliser that saw the two sides draw 2-2.

The dramatic triumph gave Sporting, who finished third in the league, a cup double for the season after their League Cup win over Porto back in January, which was also gained on penalties.

However it was further disappointment for Porto, who were pipped to the league title by Benfica by just two points after an epic title chase.

Porto looked the stronger side from the off and deservedly opened the scoring four minutes before the break thanks to a towering header from Francisco Soares, who celebrated by waving a shirt bearing the name of goalkeeper Iker Casillas.
