Portsmouth held their nerve to lift the Barclays Asia Trophy after a 4-2 penalty shoot-out victory over Liverpool at Hong Kong Stadium.

A goalless yet entertaining game could not be settled in 90 minutes and Niko Kranjcar scored the decisive spot-kick to ensure Pompey´s triumph.

Earlier in the shootout, John Utaka had fired wide for Pompey but his error was cancelled out with misses from Fernando Torres and Yossi Benayoun.
