Youri Tielemans scored one of the best goals at Wembley on Saturday as Leicester City lift their maiden FA Cup title. In a 1-0 win against Chelsea, the Belgian midfielder collected the ball just inside the opponents half and powerfully smashed the ball home from outside the area. Though the first half was a goalless fight, it was the clean long-range strike from Tielemans in the 63rd minute that made the difference between the two sides in the competition.

VAR creates controversy, again
The final of the FA Cup ended with a late drama as a marginal offside decision ruled out Wes Morgan’s own goal and deprived Chelsea of equalising. The Foxes had failed four times before in the final of the competition but finally manage to add a trophy after the 2015-16 Premier League title.
