Africans seal CSKA's Russian double

Nigeria's Ahmed Musa and Ivory Coast's Seydou Doumbia scored the crucial goals for CSKA Moscow as they beat Anzhi Makhachkala on penalties in the Russian Cup final.

The win for ten-man CSKA Moscow means they have clinched the domestic double.

Musa gave CSKA an early lead, only for French international Lassana Diarra to pull Anzhi level in the 74th minute.

With no more goals in the 90 minutes or in extra time it was left to Doumbia to score the decisive spot kick.

The Red Army side started well and took the lead just seven minutes in, Musa's effort squirming past goalkeeper Vladimir Gabulov from a tight angle.

Anzhi pushed forward in search of an equaliser but missed several clear chances before Diarra finally pulled them level in the 74th minute with a powerful strike past CSKA keeper Igor Akinfeev.

CSKA were then dealt a blow three minutes from the end of regulation time when Swedish midfielder Pontus Wernbloom was shown a straight red card for a dangerous challenge on Ivory Coast striker Lacina Traore.

Brazilian forward Vagner Love came closest to winning the game for CSKA after that, but it came down to penalties.

Yuri Zhirkov had his kick against his old club saved while Jucilei also missed, leaving the path clear for Doumbia to score the winning kick.

It is the seventh time CSKA have won the Cup since the fall of the Soviet Union.
