Chelsea Football Club: FA Cup Winners 2007 in the new Wembley Stadium
Congratulations to Chelsea Football Club to have won the double of the League and FA Cups this season. The game proved to be a very tight contest with little given away by both sides. The essence appeared to be that either side would close down their opponents very quickly and restrict as much as possible the room and speed which both are renowned for utilising in their attacks. The game went into extra time goalless, such was the extent both sides defended their goals, and it was Didier Drogba, who at times has been the one to forge something out of nowhere in the remaining moments of matches, who created a one-two with Frank Lampard, the ball chipped over the Manchester United defence for Drogba to touch ahead of Edwin van der Sar.
The goal came in the 26th minute of extra time, therefore four remaining minutes of extra-time and three more of injury time. But Manchester United had had the suffering knocked from them by then to convert any attacks into an equaliser, which allowed Chelsea to be crowned the winners of the first FA Cup final in Wembley since it was last played there in 2000, also won by London Blues. They made Saturday a Blue day.
