This ensured the tie went the distance as a penalty shootout ensued. The Egyptian giants and, incidentally, the most successful side in the history of the competition, would eventually close out the tie 6-5 on penalties to secure their eighth Super Cup crown.

To celebrate just how much the maiden piece of silverware meant to him, Tau, who arrived in Cairo in August, excitedly took to the dancefloor that was the team's change room to serve the entertainment, much to the excited chants of the rest of Pitso Mosimane's troops.
