Libya through to final after penalties

Libya reached the final of the Chan tournament beating Zimbabwe 5-4 on penalties after the titanic clash had ended goalless following 120 minutes of gruelling soccer.

Playing in pounding rains, in Bloemfontein, the Warriors have themselves to blame for not having won the match in regulation time and were still by far the better side in extra time.

But poor finishing and some indecisiveness inside the box cost them dearly a place in the final which they could have fully deserved on a treacherous Wednesday afternoon.

They will now have to settle for either third or fourth place position and yet, it was a match they could have sealed, well inside 90 minutes. They were by far the better side throughout.
