May 12, 1979: Arsenal win the FA Cup

The 1979 FA Cup final remains possibly the most exciting climax to a game at Wembley in living memory.

For 85 minutes, the match was relatively unremarkable as Arsenal cruised into a 2-0 lead over Manchester United through goals from Brian Talbot and Frank Stapleton.

However, with just four minutes remaining Gordon McQueen set hearts racing as he pulled one back for United from a set-piece. Then, two minutes later, the scores were level as Sammy McIlroy set off on a mazy run, dribbling past two players to equalise.

But the drama was still not over. In the final minute, Alan Sunderland dived in at the far post to convert Liam Brady's cross from the left to spark jubilation in the Arsenal end.

It was an incredible finale and it proved enough to secure the FA Cup for Terry Neill's side, earning the game the title of the 'Five-Minute Final' in the process.
