Amajita Crowned Commonwealth Cup Champions

Amajita were crowned Commonwealth Cup champions after defeating Finland 2-1 in the final in Russia on Sunday evening.
 
 
David Notoane's men took the lead in the 15th minute courtesy of fine header from captain, Motjeka Madisha.
 
Siphelele Luthuli came to Amajita's rescue three minutes later, as the defender pulled off a fine last ditch tackle to deny the Finish a certain goal.
 
However, Finland managed to draw themselves level in the 37th minute thanks to a strike from Tamminen Eero.
 
Amajita continued to search for a second goal in the second half, as Tlotlo Leepile saw his long range effort saved in the 60th minute, before Pule Maraisane blasted just wide minutes later.
 
However, Maraisane was not to be denied in the 77th minute, as the midfielder fired Amajita into the lead with a fine finish.
 
Finland piled on the pressure in the closing stages of the half but Amajita managed to hold on and claim a memorable win that clinched the trophy.
 
Notoane's men qualified for the knockout round by finishing second in their group, and then went on to defeat Russia  2-0 in the quarterfinal, before beating Belarus 4-3 via the penalty shoot-out after the match had ended 1-1. SuperSport United's young keeper, Dumisani Msibi, was awarded the Man of the Match accolade after saving two spot kicks. 
 
Here's how they lined up:
