Africa: MAS Fez win Confederation Cup on penalties (video)
Moroccan side MAS Fez have won the 2011 CAF Confederation Cup after a dramatic penalty shoot-out victory over Tunisians Club Africain.
The Moroccans, who trailed 1-0 from the first leg, restored parity on aggregate in today’s return fixture thanks to Moussa Tigana’s goal three minutes into first half stoppage time. With no further scoring for the rest of the game penalties were necessary to determine the outcome of the cup for the third time in the competition’s short history since 2004. The Moroccans would eventually get the better of Club Africain as the shoot-out extended beyond the normal level of five kicks each with MAS Fez prevailing with a 6-5 victory.
MAS will get the chance to compete in the 2012 CAF Super Cup against CAF Champions League winners Esperance early next year.
