Late goals by strikers; Hilal El Arbi Soudani and Ricardo Pereira in the 80th and 82nd minute won the Tarca de Portugal title.

Rui Vitoria’s side went behind on the 30th minute mark with Osvaldo Gaitan scoring to put the league runner’s up on their way to a routine victory before a packed crowd at the Estadio Nacional in Oeiras.

Guimaraes however stuck to their well-drilled tactics which sustained them all the way to turn on the style with only ten minutes left to play.

The unfazed youngsters mesmerized their marauding opponents to slot in two quick goals to record another football fairy tale story.

Addy now becomes the first Ghanaian to win the Portuguese Cup haven joined Guimaraes at the beginning of the season from FC Porto.
