Chelsea win the FA Cup

After a crazy game in which Chelsea hit the post five times in the first half, the Premier League champions finally prevailed 1-0 over Portsmouth at Wembley. The game also included two penalty misses, one for Kevin-Prince Boateng and one for Frank Lampard.

Having held on for the first half, it looked like Pompy might just pull off a remarkable shock when Dindane was brought down by Juliano Belletti in the box. However Boateng's penalty was rather weak and Cech saved with his legs. Chelsea were ahead two minutes later when Drogba scored a marvellous free kick. Lampard missed a late penalty, but it wasn't to be Portsmouth's day. This FA Cup win gave the club its first ever Double, and is a great end to a near perfect domestic season for the London club.
