Palace, Man Utd go to extra time in FA Cup final

London (AFP) – The FA Cup final between Crystal Palace and Manchester United went to extra time after the match finished 1-1 following normal time at Wembley on Saturday.

Substitute Jason Puncheon gave underdogs Palace a 78th-minute lead by slamming a shot past David de Gea at the near post, but United equalised within three minutes as Marouane Fellaini chested down Wayne Rooney’s right-sided cross for Juan Mata to volley home.

If the score is still level after the extra 30 minutes, the match will be decided by penalty kicks.

United, who beat Palace after a replay in the 1990 final, are bidding to win a record-equalling 12th FA Cup, while Palace have never previously lifted a major trophy.
