“Today it was David and Goliath. It was following a dream”
Wigan won the FA Cup for the first time in its 81-year history by beating big-spending Manchester City 1-0 on Saturday in one of the biggest final upsets the tournament has seen.
Ben Watson headed in the winner in the 90th minute at Wembley Stadium from Shaun Maloney’s corner after City, six minutes after City defender Pablo Zabaleta was sent off.
“The boys were fantastic and they deserve it,” Watson told the BBC. “To come on and score the winner in the FA Cup final is a dream.” (Photos: Shaun Botterill/Getty Images, Andrew Yates/AFP/Getty Images)
HOPE YOU HAD LUNCH ALREADY: Subway made a statue out of sandwich materials of Georgia linebacker (and potential top NFL draft pick) Jarvis Jones. It is mildly terrifying. Maybe because we aren’t raisin people — his dreadlocks are made of 1,000 of them. (Photos: Diane Bondareff/Invision for SUBWAY/AP Images; Bebeto Matthews/The Associated Press)
