So far, Leicester City have played four times in the FA Cup final. In 1949, this was the first time, and then three times as many as in the 1960s, but every time the competition got better. This is a record in English football-no team that has not won the cup has so many chances to win the trophy. Everton lost the most finals (eight games), but still managed to win five championships.
The final is traditionally held at Wembley. It is encouraging that about 20,000 fans can watch the game. In the UK, due to a progressive vaccination campaign, restrictions have been relaxed. Therefore, fans of both teams can participate in one of the most important matches of the English football season.
The miraculous goal is decisive for the victory of the FA Cup final. “What a bomb!”
More game Chelsea players performed well in the first half, but it did not translate into concrete facts. The fans watched a lot of games in the midfield, and no goals were scored in the first part of the game. In the end, there was only one goal in the whole game, but it was worth the wait. In the 63rd minute, Yuri Tillermans kicked the ball into half of his opponent. He rushed a few meters towards the Chelsea goal and shot a powerful shot from 35 meters with his right foot. The ball went straight into the goal window guarded by Kepa Arrizabalaga, and the Leicester fans gathered behind the Chelsea goal were ecstatic. The VAR judge checked the situation to see if there was no human intervention before this lawsuit, but in the end, the arbitrator decided that everything was done in accordance with the rules.
Leicester decided to end this result. Chelsea attacked and got very close to the target several times. In the 78th minute, Ben Chilwell opened his head about 8 meters from the goal and the ball was heading straight towards the goal. However, Schmeichel made a miraculous intervention. In the 87th minute, Mason Mount shot a powerful volley of 15 meters, but the goalkeeper performed well again, even if he was blocked.
The final move is a real roller coaster for the two teams. In the 90th minute, Ben Chilwell picked up the ball from the depth of the “sixteen” field. The goalkeeper ran away and kicked the ball aside. There, a Leicester defender tried to hit the ball, defeated his teammate, and the ball fell into the net. Chelsea seemed to be on the road, while Leicester left the victory behind. However, this did not happen-video verification showed that Chilwell was offside at the time of the pass. The target was rejected.
In the end, Leicester City won the FA Cup for the first time in history. Chelsea players will have more chances to win trophies. On May 29th, in Porto, they will play against Manchester City in the Champions League final.
