Frederick Piquionne puts Pompey ahead
Full marks to David James.
His shocking pink jersey attracted the white shirted Spurs like moths to a flame but they ended up shooting blanks at goal.
Harry Redknapp’s semi-final FA Cup party against his former club was spoiled as Pompey forced Spurs to extra time. But surely, this would be the end of the road for the relegated Premiership team?
In extra time, Frederick Piquionne took advantage of a Michael Dawson slip on a greasy Wembley pitch to put them ahead and then Kevin Prince Boateng’s penalty shut the door on Spurs to put Pompey into the FA Cup final in a shocker.
Avram Grant meets his old boss and club in the FA Cup final on May 15th.
Give a bow to the thousands of Pompey fans who never gave up on their team believing in them against impossible odds. Relegated on Saturday, in the FA Cup final on Sunday. Surely somewhere in this is the triumph of the human spirit.
Two thumbs down to a horrible Wembley pitch. After spending almost a billion pounds on the new stadium, is this what you get? The grounds people have to do a better job for the final otherwise teams might start refusing Wembley as a venue.
There is also no chance of Portsmouth playing in the Europa Cup next season as they cannot apply for a UEFA club license because they are in administration and are unable to file their accounts.
