Kaizer Chiefs beat Manchester City by one goal to nil to lift the Vodacom Challenge trophy in Pretoria, South Africa.
A war of attrition for the first half-hour saw the game locked in an uneventful stale-mate.
Chiefs broke the deadlock as the first half neared an end with a contraversial goal from a set-piece. The ball appeared to be controlled by Ntuka's arm before he poked the ball past Shay Given from a few yards out.
City were chasing the game in the second-half, lots of position but no final ball. Their continued surges forwards were matched by Kaizer Chiefs quick counter attacks, the next goal could have gone either way.
As it was, neither side could find a goal and save a couple of decent attempts from both sides, the half was largely uneventful.
The game finished 1-0 to Kaizer Chiefs who had previously beaten Manchester United to lift the trophy.
Hughes' men head home after an eventful time in South Africa that has included some good quality pre-season fitness, meeting living legend Nelson Mandela and witnessing the worst half-time 'win-a-car' competitions in the history of sports.
