FA Cup Final 2017
Frank Lampard: Hello everybody. Welcome to Sky Sports' live coverage of the FA Cup Final. I'm Frank Lampard, and beside me here is...
Gary Neville: Gary Neville here.
Frank Lampard: Good day, Gary!
Gary Neville: G'day, Frank, g'day.
Frank Lampard: Haha! As we all know, it's going to be Aston Villa up against Manchester United today. What are your thoughts on the final score, Gary?
Gary Neville: I think United might just edge it, but Villa will always put up a good fight.
Frank Lampard: Right, let's take a look at the line-ups.
Aston Villa: Bardi; Nagatomo, Montero, Clark, Romero; Cork, Delph, Hughes; Nem, Mattheus; Campbell
Man Utd: De Gea, Romeo, Kirchhoff, Evans, Porter; Powell, Jones; Pjanic, Shelvey, Hamsik; Henriquez
Frank Lampard: A very proper line-up from Villa, all of their strongest players. Bardi in goal, Nagatomo, Montero, Clark and Romero makes up the back line. I'm fairly surprised that Ron Vlaar is not playing, he's more experienced, but Montero can do a great job too, I suppose. Jack Cork, Fabian Delph, Will Hughes form the midfield, while Wellington Nem and Mattheus will attack with Adam Campbell.
Gary Neville: Meanwhile, in the United side we have De Gea in goal as usual, and we have a back line of Duncan Romeo, Jan Kirchhoff, Jonny Evans and Phil Porter. A dangerous midfield of Nick Powell, Phil Jones, Miralem Pjanic, Jonjo Shelvey and Marek Hamsik. Villa will have to watch out especially for Jones, Shelvey and Hamsik, who will cause havoc. Angelo Henriquez will start in the striker role, a fairly interesting decision, but it could pay off nonetheless.
Frank Lampard: Now let us get on with the match.
1' - We kick off here at the Wembley Stadium.
27' - Wellington Nem swoops the free kick in and Mattheus shoots! But it's a great save from David De Gea!
28' - Jonjo Shelvey has a crack! But Francesco Bardi punches it away!
45' - Half time here at Wembley Stadium.
45' - We return for the second half.
62' - Changes on both sides as Fabian Delph goes off for Jesus Blanco. Shinji Kagawa comes on for Nick Powell.
65' GOAL - Mattheus sweeps in from the left and Adam Campbell meets his cross with a brilliant header that sees the ball coast past David De Gea! ASTON VILLA 1-0 UP! David Beckham is probably thanking his lucky stars he chose to put faith in Campbell for this match!
68' - Villa make their last two changes as John Romero comes off for Ron Vlaar, with Ciaran Clark slotting into left-back, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain coming on for Wellington Nem.
81' - Mattheus plays it wonderfully to Adam Campbell who manages to get free of his markers! It's one-on-one with David De Gea! But unfortunately, the Spaniard saves his strike.
82' - WHAT A MISTAKE! De Gea throws it out to Jan Kirchhoff but the ball is intercepted by Jesus Blanco perfectly, who runs into the penalty box, AND IS SUBSEQUENTLY PUSHED DOWN BY PHIL JONES! IS IT A PENALTY...? YES! GIVEN! IT'S A PENALTY FOR ASTON VILLA!
82' - Jesus Blanco himself will take the penalty. If he scores, Villa will almost certainly be winning this match. Does he score?
82' GOAL - YES HE DOES! SWEPT CLEANLY INTO THE BOTTOM LEFT! A GREAT PENALTY! And the United lads are looking distraught now, they have only 8 minutes to fight back!
88' - Unfortunately, the great situation for Villa has been marred with Jack Cork getting what seems to be a potentially dangerous injury, and he'll be helped off by the physios.
94' - Francesco Bardi goal-kicks it up high towards Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and the former Arsenal winger is in the penalty box, waiting for the ball... AND HE'S DOWN! PHIL PORTER HAS PUSHED HIM! IS IT A PENALTY? YES! ANOTHER PENALTY FOR ASTON VILLA!
94' - Jesus Blanco will take this again.
94' GOAL - AND HE SCORES AGAIN! BRILLIANT STRIKE! He's being mobbed by his teammates!
90' - FT: Aston Villa 3-0 Man Utd. AND THEY'VE WON IT! ASTON VILLA HAVE SECURED A DOUBLE! THEY'VE WON THE FA CUP! BY A SHATTERING 3-0! THE MANCHESTER UNITED FANS AND PLAYERS ALIKE ARE ALL SHELL-SHOCKED! WHAT A GAME, WHAT A CAMPAIGN AND WHAT A PERFORMANCE BY VILLA!
