Glory Days: The story of United’s 1994 FA Cup final win




Away-day wins at Sheffield United, Norwich City and Wimbledon – a neat sequence of 1-0, 2-0 and 3-0 – took the champions-elect to the last eight, where a Mark Hughes goal and two from the fleet feet of Andrei Kanchelskis downed Charlton 3-1 (despite Peter Schmeichel’s dismissal) to set up another eventful last-four tussle with Oldham. 


Mark Hughes’s late goal got us out of jail first time around at Wembley, but United were not to be denied in the Maine Road replay. Early goals from ex-Latic Denis Irwin and Kanchelskis gave United a foothold in the final, with Bryan Robson and Ryan Giggs completing the job midway through the second half after Neil Pointon’s riposte halved Oldham’s arrears.
