Didier Drogba pounced five minutes from the end of extra time to hand Chelsea the FA Cup and thwart Manchester United´s double dream with a 1-0 win at Wembley.

Among the biggest let-downs of a final where tired legs ensured there was no hope of lofty pre-match expectations being met by England´s top two, Drogba produced his 33rd and final goal of an incredible season at just the right time as a penalty shoot-out seemed certain.

It was harsh luck on United, who were marginally the better side, but there was so little in the contest they could not really complain and the excellence of Drogba´s finish, after playing an excellent one-two with Frank Lampard, was beyond debate.
