This was the first FA Cup Final to be decided on penalties, with Arsenal coming out on top 5-4, the last time a FA Cup final ended 0-0 after 90 minutes was way back in 1912, and after the 30 minutes of extra time the score remained 0-0.

It was a grey day in Cardiff,the fifth time the final was played outside of England while construction worked continued at Wembley. Though it was the countries top two sides this final failed to live up to expectations. Manchester United best chances were Wayne Rooney and Ruud van Nistelrooy hit the post and the bar while Rio Ferdinand’s first-half goal was correctly disallowed for offside. Paul Scholes then had a shot on the turn saved by the Arsenal goalkeeper, Jens Lehmann. Uncharacteristically, Arsenal’s first shot on goal never came until extra time when Robin van Persie’s free-kick was saved by Roy Carroll.

Arsenal’s José Antonio Reyes received a second yellow card in the last minute of extra-time, to become only the second player ever to be sent off in an FA Cup Final, after Manchester United’s Kevin Moran in 1985.

Nine penalties out of ten were converted, Paul Scholes missed the only one, seeing it saved by Lehmann.
