United survives a scandal and qualifies to face City in the FA Cup final

Manchester United qualified for the FA Cup final following a victory over Coventry City on penalties after the end of normal and extra time in a 3-3 draw.

Perhaps the least that can be described about what happened is that United survived a resounding “scandal” themselves, and this match may be the beginning of the end of the Erik ten Hag era at Old Trafford.

United took a triple lead through Scott McTominay, Harry Maguire and Bruno Fernandes in the first 58 minutes, and everyone thought things were over for the Red Devils.

But a historic comeback for Coventry, active in the First Division, after scoring 3 goals in the last 20 minutes, including a last-minute goal from a penalty kick.

Coventry almost qualified for the final, after scoring a goal in the last minute of stoppage time, but the goal was ruled out for offside in a highly controversial shot.

In the penalty shootout, luck smiled on the Ten Hag battalion and the confrontation was decided in its favor with a score of 4-2.

With this result, Manchester United will set up a date with Manchester City at Wembley Stadium next May 25, in a repeat of last year’s final, which ended with a 2-1 victory for Pep Guardiola’s squad.
