Hull Into FA Cup Final

Hull City came from behind twice to beat Sheffield United 5-3 in an FA Cup semifinal match at Wembley stadium on Sunday.

Sheffield got off to a positive start and took the lead in the 19th minute when Jose Baxter turned home a John Brayford cross from the right, 1-0.

Five minutes later Stefan Scougall nearly doubled his side’s lead when he flashed a shot from the edge of the box narrowly wide of the target.

Hull City restored parity in the 42nd minute when Yannick Sagbo met a Jake Livermore diagonal ball with a clinical finish, 1-1.

Sheffield responded quickly and re-took the lead a minute before the break when Scougall powerfully fired the ball home from the edge of the box, 2-1.

Hull City started the second half very positively and drew level for the second time four minutes after the restart when Matty Fryatt scrambled the ball home following the goal mouth scramble at a corner-kick.

Hull then took the lead in the 54th minute when Tom Huddlestone made a run down the middle of the field, playing a one-two with Meyler before firing the ball into the back of the net, 3-2.

Stephen Quinn made certain of the victory for Hull with his side’s fourth goal in the 67th minute after he turned home another Livermore cross, 4-2.

Sheffield did find a consolation goal in the 89th minute courtesy of Jamie Murphy, 4-3.

Their joy, however, was shorted lived when David Meyler scored Hull’s fifth goal in the 93rd minute, 5-3.
