1º de Agosto win both Angola Cup and Championship

Luanda, 11/12 - 1º de Agosto conquered on Saturday the Angola Cup in football, beating in the final Benfica de Luanda by 4-3 on penalties, a match that was attended by President José Eduardo dos Santos, who handed over the trophy to the winners.#

The extra-time period ended with a 1-1 draw, scored by Gazeta (1º de Agosto) and Vado (Benfica).

1º de Agosto had not won this competition for the last 15 years, and this season they have a "double" reason to celebrate, since they are also the anticipated champions of the national first division soccer championship that is in its penultimate round.
