Besiktas captures Turkey Cup

Brazilian striker Bobo scored in extra-time to earn Besiktas a 1-0 victory over Kayseri Erciyesspor in the Turkey Cup final on Wednesday.

Besiktas secured the trophy for the seventh time after Bobo put the Istanbul side ahead in the 102nd minute with a header from midfielder Serdar Kurtulus's cross.

Besiktas dominated the game against little-fancied Erciyesspor, who were contesting their first final having knocked out Galatasaray and Trabzonspor en route.

Brazilian striker Mert Nobre failed to finish a promising attack by the Istanbul side in the 30th minute and 10 minutes later his long-range shot was easily stopped by Erciyes keeper Orkun Usak.

Despite making a series of good saves, Orkun could do little to stop Bobo's extra-time header.
