The 1988 FA Cup Final which took place on 14 May 1988 at Wembley Stadium. It was contested between unfashionable and unfancied Wimbledon and Liverpool who were one of the most dominant teams of the 1980s and newly-crowned league champions. The result was one of the biggest shocks in the history of the competition as Wimbledon, the London side won the Cup, 1–0, for the only time in their history. The final is also notable as the first instance of a penalty save (by Dave Beasant from John Aldridge) in FA Cup Final history.

Beasant was the first goalkeeper to captain an FA Cup winning side.

This final was the last one that would be screened by ITV and BBC, something that had been the case since 1958.

Wimbledon took the lead shortly before half-time, when Lawrie Sanchez’s header, from a Dennis Wise free kick on the left, went across goalkeeper Bruce Grobbelaar and into the net.

Liverpool created a host of chances, including a strike by Peter Beardsley disallowed as the referee had already awarded a free kick to Liverpool, but were unable to find a way past Wimbledon goalkeeper Dave Beasant.

The Merseysiders were awarded a penalty on the hour mark following a foul by Clive Goodyear, but John Aldridge’s shot was saved by Beasant, who thus became the first keeper to save a penalty in a Wembley FA Cup final.

Wimbledon survived more pressure from Liverpool to secure their first major trophy and a notable upset.
