Todas Las Finales Merecen Un Gol Como El Que Tielemans Hizo Para Darle La FA Cup Al Leicester

En 137 años de existencia, el Leicester City nunca había ganado la FA Cup. Había jugado cuatro finales, pero siempre había estado del lado perdedor. La mala racha, sin embargo, se acabó este sábado cuando los Foxes derrotaron a Chelsea, con un fenomenal golazo de Youri Tielemans, uno que quedará dentro de los mejores y más memorables en la historia de la competencia.

Zack Steffen Caught Out Of Position As Chelsea Ends Man City’s Quadruple Quest

Before Saturday’s FA Cup semifinal, Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola said he’d “lose the team” if he didn’t start American keeper Zack Steffen vs Chelsea. In the end, the decision may have lost the game.

Steffen made a positioning error to allow Chelsea to score the only goal in 1-0 defeat on Saturday at Wembley, costing the Citizens a chance at a rare quadruple. Steffen, who was otherwise faultless and moments later made a one-on-one save to atone, will no doubt rue his moment of indecision that allowed Hakim Ziyech a tap-in. 

Christian Pulisic Named Man Of The Match As Chelsea Advances To FA Cup Semis

Chelsea advanced to the semifinals of the FA Cup with a narrow 2-0 win over Sheffield United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Following a corner kick, it was Ben Chilwell’s hopeful hit back into the area that forced Norwood to turn it beyond Aaron Ramsdale.

The independent review, commissioned by English football's governing body in 2016, found there were at least 240 suspects and 692 survivors of sexual abuse as of August last year.

Man United Vs. West Ham Has Moments Of Magic, Moments Of Total Madness

Ole Gunnar Solskjær is in hot pursuit of his first trophy as Manchester United manager after the Red Devils tepidly advanced to the quarterfinals of the FA Cup following a 1-0 extra time victory over West Ham.

United couldn’t generate a whole lot with Fred, Nemanja Matić and Donny van de Beek handed the keys to midfield, but West Ham failed to land a shot on target until the 114th-minute. 

The opening half produced this nice Zidane turn from Marcus Rashford…

From Alcorcón To Pordenone: The Biggest Cup Upsets In Footballing History

Soccer is one of the very few sports that boasts competitions where small, local sides are able to face off against the best teams in the country. These matchups capture the imagination while providing a sense of hope and magic to a small group of supporters.

Domestic cups have long provided smaller clubs with the opportunity to prove their mettle by facing nationally recognized sides, and while major upsets are rare, just the slightest hope of an improbable win is enough to cause local pandemonium and stir significant interest among neutral supporters.
