Latics ecstatic after Cup shock

Wigan Athletic 1 Manchester City 0 FA Cup final (Wembley 11 May 2013)
Wigan Athletic caused a huge upset by beating the reigning Premier League champions Manchester City to lift the FA Cup at Wembley. The Latics, who are fighting to avoid relegation from the top tier, matched the Premier League runners up and grabbed the winner in stoppage time to leave 10-man City with very little time to force extra time.
Pablo Zabaleta became only the 3rd player in an FA Cup final to see red as his sliding tackle earned him a 2nd yellow in the 84th minute. With the match entering stoppage time Ben Watson ran onto a corner kick to head the ball across goal past Joe Hart for the winner.
