Eventually Iran left, without obtaining any information from the Nigerian 'organisers'. One day later, the Nigerian FA awarded Ghana third place (and the relevant prize money) because Iran had left the pitch (sic!). Iran have understandably protested.] Final [Jun 1, Lagos] Nigeria 3-0 Cameroon [aet] [Joseph Yobo 98, Yakubu Aiyegbeni 100, Ahmed Garba 102] [red cards: Noyves (Cmr) 18, Mambile Bayemi (Cmr) 86]
