BELGIUM CUP: Miya holds his first Euro trophy

Valdes celebrate last night

In a sign of the confidence his new club have in in him, Ugandan international Farouk Miya was part of the team as Standard Liege lifted the Belgium Cup yesterday at the King Baudouin Stadium, Brussels.

Miya was on the bench as Standard Liege's Croatian striker Ivan Santini headed the winner three minutes from time to snatch their 7th Belgian Cup with a 2-1 final victory over holders Club Brugge.

Jean-Luc Dompe had earlier put Standard Liege in the lead that lasted 10 minutes. Israeli international Lior Rafaelov, who scored the winner in last year's final, had put Bruges back in the game.

It was just the second game (CLICK HERE to READ STORY) that Miya has featured in after joining the club from Uganda's Vipers last month. His first game was a week back, coming on as a substitute in his club's last regular season match.

Miya is now expected to return to Uganda for international duty. Uganda takes on Burkina Faso in two games in 4 days next week!
