Spurs 3 Manchester City 2 F.A.CUP FINAL REPLAY at Wembley.
Within seven minutes Villa had given Spurs the lead but this only lasted three minutes as City equalised with a spectacular goal. Both teams were creating chances and City went ahead five minutes into the second half from a penalty.
The match became tense with tackles flying in on both sides. In the 71st minute Spurs equalised with a goal from Crooks.
Seven minutes later, Ricky Villa stepped forward and dribbled around and through the City defence to score the most incredible Cup Final winner of all time – Saturday’s ‘failure’ had become the Hero with a never to be forgotten goal.
