1999 FA Cup Final

1999 FA Cup Final

The 1999 FA Cup Final took place on 22 May 1999 and was played at the old Wembley Stadium. It was contested between Manchester United and Newcastle United. Manchester United had finished as champions and Newcastle 13th in the Premier League that season. The Final was a slightly one-sided affair, Manchester United claiming a record 10th success with a 2–0 win. Goals from Teddy Sheringham and Paul Scholes were scored in the 11th and 53rd minutes respectively. It was the build up to United's Treble.

Match summary

First half

The first half was full of incident, a blazed Nolberto Solano effort, a booking for Dietmar Hamann and an injured Roy Keane replaced by Sheringham all in the first eight minutes. Just over 90 seconds after the substitution, Manchester United took the lead. An incisive move, crafted first by Andy Cole then by Paul Scholes with a well-weighted first time ball allowed Sheringham to drift into the box and rifle a low drive under the Newcastle goalkeeper Steve Harper. Further chances fell to Solskjær, Cole and Sheringham in the first half, but all were unable to convert their efforts. Newcastle's best chance of the half fell to Hamann, a powerfully hit long-range effort just being diverted away from goal by Peter Schmeichel.

econd half

The Newcastle manager Ruud Gullit, who knew the match was fading from his team, began the second half by replacing Hamann with Duncan Ferguson. Eight minutes into the half, Manchester United went 2–0 up. A long ball from Solskjær was chased by Ryan Giggs but was beaten to it by Nikos Dabizas. It was cleared and won back by Solskjær, passed to Sheringham with his back to goal, who rolled it into the path of Scholes and drilled into the corner of the net.
