The 1979 FA Cup Final was played on 12 May 1979 at Wembley Stadium. The match was contested by Arsenal and Manchester United. It wass one of the greatest-ever finishes in an FA Cup final.

For over 85 minutes the game had been unremarkable, with Arsenal taking a 2–0 half time lead through goals from Brian Talbot and Frank Stapleton. In the 86th minute, however, Gordon McQueen scored following a set-piece, and two minutes later Sammy McIlroy dribbled past two Arsenal players to score a dramatic equaliser.

With the game poised for extra time, United’s celebrations proved short-lived, as Alan Sunderland scored a last-minute winner, making the final result Arsenal 3–2 Manchester United. This match is often referred to as the “Five-minute Final”.
