Youri Tielemans Scores Absolute Worldie In FA Cup Final

Youri Tielemans scored an incredible goal in the FA Cup final, in a goal worthy of any final, as Leicester City opened the scoring vs Chelsea.

The cup final started out as a tentative but gripping affair with neither side being able to test the opposition goalkeeper throughout the first half.

It took until the 53rd minute for Marco Alonso to record the first shot on target, although it was easily held by Kasper Schmeichel, trying to emulate his dad as an FA Cup winner.

The second shot on target came 10 minutes but this one was worth the wait. Reece James gave the ball away from a pass and Leicester broke.

The ball came to Tielemans, who ran with the ball and then unleashed an almighty shot from outside the area and beat Kepa Arrizabalaga into the top corner, pure class!

With 21,000 fans back at Wembley, the largest crowd in England since Covid-19 locked football down completely in March 2020, the roar when Tielemans scored was sensational.

Chelsea are chasing their ninth FA Cup trophy, and their first since 2018, and trying to erase the memory of losing to Arsenal in the final last season.

The Foxes on the other hand were hunting their first ever FA Cup win, having previously lost on four occasions, the most recent one being in 1969.

Can Brendan Rodgers' side hang on to lift the trophy?
