Nantes clinch French Cup title

Nantes won the French Cup for the first time in 22 years on Saturday, beating Nice 1-0 in the final at the Stade de France.

Ludovic Blas drilled home a penalty at the start of the second half to bring Nantes the club's first major trophy since winning the Ligue 1 title in 2001.

Nantes, who only avoided relegation in a play-off last season, lifted the French Cup for the fourth time.
