Celebrations are continuing in the Nyasa Big Bullets camp following their winning of the Carlsberg Cup on Saturday.

They beat archrivals Be-Forward Wanderers on Post-match penalties in a final match played at the Bingu National Stadium in the capital city Lilongwe.

Millions of football enthusiasts tuned in on radio and television to watch the much anticipated match between malawi’s football giants.

The first goal came from the Nomads’ Jafali Chande 22 minutes into the game, before Muhammad Sulumba equalised for the Bullets in the 32nd minute.

Isaac Kaliati put the Nomads back in the lead before Nelson Kangunje equalised in the 75th minute from the penalty spot to make it 2-all.

After 90 minutes with both teams head to head, the match had to be decided through penalties where Wanderers’ Chester missed his spot kick.

This left leaving Kangunje with the opportunity to score the winning penalty to hand Bullets the trophy for the third time, matching their rivals who were the defending champions before the defeat.

This was the fourth time the rivals were meeting in the Carlsberg Cup final since its inception in 2000

“I’m happy we managed to lift the cup and this is a clear indication that we are on top of Wanderers this season in terms of derby wins,” a Bullets die hard remarked after the game.

A Nomad fan Isaac Nyirenda simply said,”We are not good at penalties during cup final. Look second cup final defeat in a season and this is painful to us.

The Bullets have taken home K12 Million in prize money and a trophy.
