Ludovic Blas was the hero with a second-half penalty as Nantes ended their 21-year trophy drought by beating Nice 1-0 in the Coupe de France final.

Not since 2001 had Nantes added to their list of honours, but they will play in the Europa League next season after edging Saturday’s showdown at the Stade de France.

Blas was on target from the spot in the second minute of the second half after Hicham Boudaoui handled and Stephanie Frappart – the first female to referee a men’s Coupe de France final – pointed to the spot.

Nantes held on to secure a return to Europe, leaving Nice without a trophy since back in 1997.
