Emmanuel Boateng wins Portuguese League Cup

Ghana striker Emmanuel Okyere Boateng won the Portuguese Cup with Moreirense on Sunday night.

A late first half penalty from Cauê Cecilio da Silva was all they needed to beat 2013 winners Braga. Boateng, 20, came on as a 61st-minute substitute for Portuguese teammate Roberto Porfirio.

He scored a brace in the semi-final last Thursday when Moreirense beat giants Benfica 3-1.

Boateng has scored seven goals in 17 games for Moreirense this season.
