Arsenal v Wigan
FA Cup Semi Final
Kick off: April 12, 2014 5.07 PM BST
In true Arsenal style we were left stressing to the end thanks to an abysmal Mertesacker slide tackle that earned Wigan the lead, before the BFG made amends with a well taken header late in the game.
Half an hour extra time ensued where we came very close on a number of occasions but Lukasz Fabianski and the four penalty takers (Arteta, Kallstrom, Giroud and Cazorla) did their part to earn us a return ticket to Wembley next month.
Fabianski takes our plaudits for saving Wigan’s first 2 penalties which was an immense feat, he put us in the driving seat and will deservedly earn his place in the starting lineup in the final next month.
