Modern-day referees upon reviewing the game said, that there would have been 6 red cards and 20 yellow cards between them had they played in the modern era. Osgood’s equalizer took Chelsea to extra-time where David Webb scored the winner, tapping it home after Ian Hutchinson’s long throw missed everyone.

Chelsea lifted the FA Cup for the first time.
