Super Liga top scorer Liedson da Silva struck a last-gasp winner to seal the Taca de Portugal for league runners-up Sporting Lisbon at Estadio Nacional on Sunday.

The Brazilian scored the only goal of the game with three minutes remaining to break Belenenses hearts and make up for missing out on the title on the last day of the season.

"This is the best moment since I signed for Sporting," Da Silva said. "This win is special because we fought for it throughout a season in which we had some set-backs. This was a win for the team, not a personal achievement even though I scored many goals."
