Alan Sunderland v Manchester United (N) 05-12-1979
At the 1979 FA Cup final, Arsenal appeared to be cruising to victory against Manchester United. But in the 86th minute, Gordon McQueen gave United hope. And just two minutes later, Sammy McIlroy stunned Arsenal by scoring the equalizer.
But there was one more twist to be had in this iconic final.
Liam Brady took possession at the center line and surged into the United half running between two defenders. He sent the ball out left to Graham Rix who, with but one touch, sent a masterful cross toward the far post and an on-rushing Alan Sunderland.
The striker managed to get his foot behind the ball and slid in the winner.
Perhaps not the most attractive goal in the Club's history, but it certainly was an important one.8 Sep 2010
