Lowly Swindon dumps Wigan out of the FA Cup, 2-1


szólj hozzá: Swindon v Wigan 2:1 (FA Cup)
Paolo Di Canio’s Swindon, in League 2, shocked Wigan three levels above them. Callum McManaman got the ball rolling for Wigan seizing the rebound after Ben Watson’s penalty struck the post. But Swindon playing some really good football staged a comeback through Alan Connell and Paul Benson.
After the match the controversial Di Canio wanted to commemorate the match with a plaque with the names of all the players who pulled off this stunning victory. He also said he fancied meeting Man United next. Di Canio has fond memories of scoring West Ham’s winner at Old Trafford 11 years ago. It was Swindon’s first entry into the FA Cup fourth round in 16 years.
