Angola Wins Amputee Football World Cup

Angola have won the 2018 Amputee Football World Cup in Mexico, beating Turkey 5-4 in a penalty shoot-out in Sunday's final.

The match ended 0-0 after normal time, and the deadlock could not be broken in extra-time.

The deciding shoot-out proved just as tense with both teams scoring from their first four penalties.

At 4-4, Angola's goalkeeper, Jesus, made a crucial save to deny Turkey.

The African team, who finished as runners-up at the last World Cup, sealed their championship victory thanks to a winning spot-kick from Henio Guilerme.
