United Win The FA Cup, Qualify For Europa League

WEMBLEY: Manchester United chose the best moment to save their bad season when they shocked Manchester City 2-1 to lift the FA Cup for the first time since 2016 at Wembley Stadium, just a moment ago.

Victory over the English Premier League champions allowed the Red Devils to also book a ticket to next season’s Europa League after just finishing the league campaign in eighth place – their worst position since 1990.

Even sweeter, Erik Ten Hag’s men also managed to prevent the neighboring enemy from making history by becoming the first team to win the league and the FA Cup two seasons in a row.

When Ten Hag’s position was in shambles and the player was bombarded with criticism following his poor performance this season, the Red Devils line clearly did not pay attention to the issue, instead appearing with good defensive action to make up for the disappointment of losing in the same final action last season.

In fact, they surprised City when they took the lead in the 30th minute through Alejandro Garnacho who capitalized on a defensive error by Josko Gvardiol and goalkeeper Stefan Ortega.

Nine minutes later, City’s goal was conceded again when young player Kobbie Mainoo scored the second goal with an exciting move to strengthen United’s position.

Although substitute Jeremy Doku narrowed the gap for City in the 87th minute with a shot from outside the penalty box, the goal was too late for Pep Guardiola’s men to drag the action into extra time thus allowing United not to end the season empty-handed.
