Black Stars defender Rashid Sumaila won his first trophy with Al Qadsia after they beat Al Salmiyah 1-0 in the  in the Emir Cup finals on Tuesday in Saudi.

The Ghanaian international helped his side to lift the Emir Cup trophy for a record 16 times after managing a narrow win at the Al Kuwait Sports Club Stadium.

Al Qadsia thus wins their first trophy of the season after failing to defend their League title at the end of the 2014/15 League season.

Sumaila has been instrumental for the Kuwaiti giants since joining the Club on loan from South African side Memolodi Sundowns.

The former Asante Kotoko center-back is however expected to be handed a permanent deal as his contract ends on May 31. The young defender has been neglected by the  Black Stars coach Avram  Grant but believes  his consistent output will see him return to play for the senior national team.
