The FA Cup Final is the highest attended football event in United Kingdom and it sees the end of one of the most famous knockout competitions in the world. To play in an FA Cup Final is one of the most exciting experiences for professional footballers up and down the land, most of whom would have been brought up watching the final during their childhood and would have dreamt about samshing in the winning goal in front of 90,000 fans at Wembley Stadium.
The FA Cup is about to embark its 133rd year and there is no doubt that it is going as strong as ever. Last year’s Final was an engrossing encounter between Arsenal and Hull at a packed Wembley Stadium, with underdogs Hull pushing their opponents all the way, before eventually succuming in extra-time.
Last season Arsenal won their first trophy in nine years after beating Hull City 3-2 in a pulsating Final at Wembley Stadium. The Gunners stormed back from two goals down - after the Tigers took a shock 2-0 lead - to send the thrilling encounter into extra-time. The teams were trading blows, before Aaron Ramsey netted a late winner, which ended years of hurt for the North London club.
