Alan Sunderland will forever be remembered for that goal in that FA Cup final.

On the day of his 60th birthday, we look back at what is arguably his crowning moment - scoring the winning goal for Arsenal against Manchester United at Wembley in 1979.

Arsenal appeared to have one hand on the cup after strikes from Brian Talbot and Frank Stapleton had given them a two-goal advantage with five minutes remaining.

But, almost out of nowhere, the Gunners found themselves pegged back after United scored twice in the space of three minutes through Gordon McQueen and Sammy McIlroy.

All the momentum seemed to be with United, but with extra time looming Sunderland's moment arrived as he he threw himself in at the far post to convert Graham Rix's deep cross and secure the cup.

It was a sensational moment to end a sensational FA Cup final. What better way to commemorate Sunderland's birthday by viewing our gallery below.
