Leicester City win the first FA Cup in their history.
Leicester City gain a historic victory by winning against Chelsea in the FA Cup final at Wembley stadium. The 0-1 win over the London club came after Youri Tielemans, scored one of the most spectacular goals ever scored in a FA Cup final.

The Belgian midfielder scored a screamer at the 63rd minute of the match, an incredible attempt from 30 meters into the top corner. The goal helped Leicester secure their first-ever FA Cup title in their 137-year-old history.
But Tielemans' goal was not the only thing that granted the Foxes their FA Cup win. Two incredible world-class saves from goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel also prevented Chelsea from scoring equalizers on two different occasions.
'Wow, what a finish,' Schmeichel later exclaimed in an interview. 'I didn't dare to celebrate because there's always VAR.'
But tensions were high at Wembley in the closing stages of the match. The Foxes fans were nearly disappointed with Wes Morgan's scrambled ball into his own net, but thankfully, it was overturned by the VAR.
The game was also speculated by 21,000 fans who got to witness the match inside the stadium - a record number of fans since the lockdown. The FA Cup win has been another major achievement in the club's history since their 2015-2016 Premier League win.
