Portsmouth booked their place in the Barclays Asia Trophy final after Benjani Mwaruwari´s first-half goal saw Harry Redknapp´s side overcome Fulham 1-0 at Hong Kong Stadium.

Both sides fielded a number of new signings and a competitive contest was settled just before the break thanks to a predatory strike from the Pompey striker.

Muntari nearly doubled Portsmouth´s lead eight minutes from time when he hit a thunderous 25-yard strike that just whistled past the post and Gary O´Neil hit the post with a fierce strike in injury-time as Pompey finished the stronger.
