1 At the end of extra time of the second leg, the referee decided that lots would be drawn to attribute the trophy on the next day, but the CAF secretary-general later arrived with regulations that a third match be played. The decider was set for December 27, in Yaoundé, Cameroon, but Asante Kotoko did not show up (apparently not having been informed of the match arrangements by the Ghanaian FA), and TP Englebert were declared champions.
