Cracking FA Cup Final

Chelsea dominated much of the first half, with Leicester struggling to stay in the game, but the latter defended so well that Kasper was not exposed to any difficult shots. Second half they came out like a completely different outfit. Fully rejuvenated, started winning most of the 50 50 tackles and what a strike to win the game. What is it with Belgium and football?! Chelsea supporters and purists feel the equalizing goal that VAR canceled is the bane of the new game, but that is what it is all about in the last 100 m of the race. Small things have big consequences. 

Werner no doubt is a weak link – he still is not the finished package. Chelsea have a bit to ponder coming to the Champions League finals end of this month.

Vardy and co. played to win. There was no shortage of desire, commitment to win this. Tactically both teams sound, but it was essentially attack versus defense. Tuchel will feel hard done by. The better team lost. David won. Happy for Leicester City.
