Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang produces the worst FA Cup trophy lift in history


Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was Arsenal’s FA Cup final hero on Saturday.

The Gabon international scored both goals in the Gunners’ 2-1 win over Chelsea.

Christian Pulisic scored the opening goal of the game in the fifth minute but Aubameyang levelled the scores from the penalty spot midway through the first half after being brought down by Cesar Azpilicueta.

Aubameyang then won the FA Cup final for Arsenal with a glorious second goal in the 67th minute.

Where on earth would the Gunners be without the 31-year-old, whose future at the Emirates Stadium is far from certain as things stand?

After helping Arsenal seal a record-breaking 14th FA Cup, Aubameyang had the honour of lifting the FA Cup.

Because of the current rules, only Aubameyang could lift the trophy.


But unfortunately - and to the amusement of every football fan - he made a complete mess of it.

He clearly didn’t realise the trophy was already in two parts.

But then, as he was walking towards his teammates, Aubameyang then proceeded to drop the trophy.

Watch it here...

Here's the full version of Aubameyang's trophy lift...

The reaction of his teammates was priceless…



Poor Aubameyang must have felt mortified after producing the worst FA Cup trophy lift in history.

But if anything, this moment merely sums up the weird year that has been 2020.
