Background: Chelsea captured the English Football Association Cup for the first time in their 65-year history when they beat Leeds United 2-1 after extra time in the replay at Old Trafford, Manchester, tonight (Wednesday, April 29). The replay was the result of a 2-2 draw at Wembley on April II.
It was only the second time in the 99-year history f the world's oldest soccer tournament that a replay has gone into extra time.
After 90 minutes of play, the score was tied at I-I. David Webb scored the winning goal for Chelsea after 14 minutes of extra time.
Leeds opened the scoring when England World Cup striker Allan Clarke beat three Chelsea defenders to pass through to Mick Jones, who fired the ball past Chelsea goal-keeper Peter Bonetti in the 35th minute.
Chelsea came back into its own in the 78 minute when Scottish International Charlie Cooke chipped the ball over the Leeds defenders and Pater Osgood headed in to score.
The prospect of a third game seemed possible when the game went into extra time, but in the 104th minute Hutchinson's long throw-in into the goal area was back headed by a Leeds player and David Webb scrambled the ball over the line.
A second replay, if needed, had been scheduled for Saturday, two days before England's World Cup Squad leave for Mexico City. Of the six World Cup men playing tonight more suffered any serious injury, but Leeds centre-half Jack Charlton pulled a leg muscle. It is not yet known whether this will affect his trip to Mexico.
