FA Cup – Lampard screamer wins it for Chelsea

Frank Lampard scored a stunning winner as Chelsea came from behind to beat Everton 2-1 and win the FA Cup final at Wembley.

Lampard fired home from 25 yards to give Chelsea their fifth FA Cup triumph and provide departing manager Guus Hiddink a glorious send-off.

Louis Saha struck with just 25 seconds on the clock to put Everton ahead, before Chelsea drew level through Didier Drogba’s header midway through the first half.

Chelsea’s superiority told in the second half and after Lampard struck, Hiddink’s men should have been awarded a third goal when Florent Malouda’s long-range effort hit the bar and went over the line.
