Manchester United beat Coventry on penalties to book FA Cup final

Manchester United booked a record 22nd FA Cup final on Sunday after beating Coventry on penalties to put to rest a scary clash at Wembley Stadium.

Coventry head coach Mark Robins stepped into the clash fully aware that a win for them will further dent the career of Erik Ten Hag at Manchester United.

After containing the Red Devils in the first minutes of the first half, Scott McTominay found space in the penalty box before slipping home a Diogo Dalot’s cross recording his 10th goal of the season.

Harry Maguire doubled the lead just before half time after heading home a Bruno Fernandes corner sending them at the break with a string advantage. In the second half the captain himself was on the scoresheet beating Bradley Collins at the post.

Simms netted the first goal for Coventry thanks to a Fábio Tavares cross much to the excitement of the fans. Callum O’Hare doubled the lead when his long shot came off Aaron Wan-Bissaka and going past Andre Onana.

Wan-Bissaka was penalized in stoppage time following a handball on Luis Binks cross which was comfortably converted by Haji Wright sending the tie to extra time.

After a goalless extra time show, the clash was settled on penalties which was won by Rasmus Hojlund who stepped up after Ben Sheaf blew his chance over the bar.
