Ramsey scores in extra-time to end trophy drought, Arsenal Beats Hull City 3-2
Arsenal snatched victory from the jaws of defeat to win a record-equalling 11th FA Cup, as they beat Hull City 3-2 in an enthralling encounter at Wembley Stadium.
It had been 3,283 days since Arsenal last experienced last lifted silverware.
And Wenger¡¯s men will be breathing an enormous sigh of relief tonight as goals from Santi Cazorla, Laurent Koscielny and an extra-time winner from Aaron Ramsey rescued the Gunners ¨C and cancelled out early strikes from James Chester and Curtis Davies that had given Steve Bruce¡¯s men the lead inside eight minutes.
The game began at a barnstorming pace and some had barely taken to their seats as Chester sent the Hull fans into delirium ¨C and Bruce punched the air in delight.
Stephen Quinn floated a corner into the path of Tom Huddlestone on the edge of the box, the former Spurs man hooked his volley into the path of Chester ¨C who stuck out a foot and turned it past Lukasz Fabianski and into the bottom corner off a post.
Just as Manchester City had a year earlier, Arsenal had taken to the Wembley field as overwhelming favourites ¨C and like City 12 months ago seemed to be shell-shocked by their opponents¡¯ drive, determination and positivity during the opening exchanges.
And if they were pinching themselves after Chester¡¯s opener, moments later the Hull faithful were positively in dreamland as captain Davies made 2-0.
Centre-back Bruce got on the end of another set piece and Fabianski could only parry the header onto the post and back into the path of Davies ¨C who rifled home.
Goodluck to all Arsenal Fans.
