Both sides had drawn 0-0 following 90 minutes and extra-time in a disappointing final on Saturday.

Cape Verde can afford to count themselves fortunate when they had a seemingly good goal by Osvaldo Martins ruled out for offside.

The ball fell into Martin’s path via a Guinea defender and should have stood.

Team Cape Verde also had the best of the chances.

But the team missed two of their penalties in the shootout with Guinea’s Morlaye Sylla keeping calm to convert the vital kick.
