English: The 2006 FA Cup Final was the final and deciding match of the 2005-06 FA Cup. It took place on 13 May 2006 at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, the last FA Cup Final to be held there, as the new Wembley Stadium finished completion. The match saw the 2001 cup winners Liverpool beat London club West Ham United after a penalty shootout. West Ham were ahead 2-0 and then 3-2 but Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard scored a goal in the last minute from over 30 yards to take the game to extra-time and they eventually triumphed on penalties. It is considered by most who watched to be one of the greatest cup finals in the history of the tournament.
