Manchester United have beaten Manchester City 2-1 in the FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium.

The victory marks United’s first trophy of the season and ensures their qualification for the Europa League next year.

Alejandro Garnacho scored the opening goal in the 30th minute, capitalizing on mistakes by City’s defender Josko Gvardiol and goalkeeper Stefan Ortega. Just nine minutes later, Robbie Mainoo added a second goal, igniting celebrations from United’s manager, Erik ten Hag.

Although United led 2-0 at halftime, Manchester City fought back in the second half. Jeremy Doku’s long-range shot in the 87th minute brought City back into the game. Despite several close attempts from City, including a shot that hit the bar from Erling Haaland and key saves by United’s goalkeeper Andre Onana, United held on to win.

This victory is United’s 13th FA Cup, just one short of Arsenal’s record of 14. It is also Erik ten Hag’s second trophy with the club, following their League Cup win last year. Ten Hag’s future was uncertain before the match, but this win provided a high note to end a challenging season.

The match was watched by United’s co-owners, Joel and Avram Glazer, along with British billionaire Jim Ratcliffe. The win was a significant boost for the team and its fans, capping off a season of ups and downs with a major victory.
