This is the stuff fairy tales are made off. Despite the caliber of the teams in the tournament, Wigan some how found themselves in the final of the FA cup at Wembley. On paper they were the underdogs against Manchester city, still smarting from a some what humiliating loss of the premier league title to their city rivals. Both teams, battling for glory, one looking to compensate for a poor title challenge whilst the other looking for their first FA cup and some confidence to take into their continued attempt to avoid relegation from the premier league. Up steps Ben Watson to glance an 89th minute header from a Maloney corner, past Joe Hart.
Watson broke his leg towards the end of last year and had only recently started to make his way back into the team. What a way to announce your return. Bens goal was the only goal of the match but was enough to secure Wigan’s first FA cup.
Ben Watson, you are our SuperSub of the week and maybe even potentially the SuperSub of the 2012/2013 season.
