Arouna Kone helped Wigan Athletic to a historic English FA Cup triumph on Saturday after they edged compatriot Yaya Toure's Manchester City 1:0 in the final.
Wigan's determination to lift the crown for the first time in their history was helped by the sending off of Argentine defender Pablo Zabaleta in the 84th minute.
Kone and Yaya played every moment of the thrilling game which was decided in the 91st minute when substitute Ben Watson headed home from a corner kick.
Toure came close to scoring early on, but his shot was turned away by Spain's U-21 star Joel Robles who was in goal for Wigan.
SuperSport United v ENPPI
SuperSport United have been dumped out of the CAF Confederation Cup after a 3-1 loss to Egyptian side ENPPI at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday.
South African sides have had a notoriously lackadaisical attitude to CAF competitions in the past, but SuperSport has talked up their determination to do well this year.
Maluleka had SuperSport in front on 10 minutes though with a fantastic strike from just outside the box that flew into the top corner.
But the tie turned on two goals in as many minutes for the visitors just before halftime and Ivorian forward Vincent die Foneye got Ismaily both.
Saint-Etienne striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was delighted to see his side lift the Coupe de la Ligue on Saturday.
A 1-0 win over Rennes gave Saint-Etienne their first major trophy since 1981, when they won the Ligue 1 title, and Aubameyang said he was happy to give the team's supporters something to shout about.
"All the fans have been waiting for this day and us as well," Aubameyang said.
"To be able to write a new page in the history of the club is just wonderful.
"Personally, I will never forget this moment and neither will anyone else in the team. We all get along very well together and we are one team."
Nicholas Nkoulou, Pierre Aubameyang
The Marc-Vivien Foe award, with the name of the former Cameroonian footballer who died in June 2003 at the Confederations Cup and rewarding since 3 years the best African player in Ligue 1 has announced its nominees for the 2013 edition.
Tunisia aligns three players; Aymen Abdennour (Tunisia, Toulouse FC), Wahbi Khazri (Tunisia, Bastia) and Saber Khelifa (Tunisia, Evian Thonon Gaillard). It is the largest contingent of nominees. Togo will count on the goalkeeper Kossi Agassa and the midfielder Romao Alaixys to win the title.
The favorites for the 2013 edition are undoubtedly the Gabonese Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang , author of 17 goals in Ligue 1 and the Cameroonian Nkoulou Nicolas of Marseille. Both players enjoyed a good season and are in the running for a place on the European stage next season.
